Hodbarrow Outer Barrier


Hodbarrow Outer Barrier is an extensive sea wall built between 1900 and 1905 by the Hodbarrow Mining Co. Ltd. to protect it's iron ore mine from the sea. This was built after the earler inner wall had been breached by the sea in 1885 and 1898, flooding the mines. Hodbarrow Lighthouse was built on the outer barrier. After it's closure in 1968, the mines were flooded. Today, the barrier forms Hodbarrow Lagoon and is part of the RSPB Hodbarrow Nature Reserve.
