Maritime Monolith

  • Description

    This pyramid is a navigational structure on the coast of Lindisfarne. Situated at the north-eastern tip of the island (at a point called Emmanuel Head), this old structure is known as a 'daymark' - an icon to help fishermen and other maritime traffic locate their position during daylight hours. The little monolith leads a lonely existence, staring out boldly at the mighty North Sea which ceaselessly tears away at the rock that supports it.
