  • Description

    "This slender structure, about 20m (65') tall, was a navigation beacon or "leading light" dating back to c.1875 It is of red and yellow bricks, with a square cross-section. It has red brick pilaster strips with yellow brick side panels and iron straps that project up from concrete foundations. A ladder leads up to a door well above ground level. It stands just above the mean high water line meaning that at spring high tides its base will be under water. I do not think that it has shone a light for many a year. It is an EH Grade II listed building - listing here" Photo by Rob Farrow, 2013.
