Low Light, N Shields

  • Description

    There have been navigation lights at North Shields since 1540 but neglect of the buildings and silting of the river have, from time to time, rendered them virtually useless. Work on these began in 1807 at Dockwray Square and at the Pow Dene. The current ones were first lit in 1810 and still stand today but are no longer used to direct shipping into the river.
