• Description

    Amble harbour. While on a boat trip out to Coquet island they retold the background to the crack. This did once hold the lighthouse but during WWII, three mines were dropped on the habour. The Navy found two but failed to find the third. A local dredger did find it sadly to the loss of those on board. The explosion damaged the wall which through time lead to this. The lighthouse was of course removed.
