The entrance to Maryport harbour

  • Description

    "A lighthouse was established at Maryport in 1796. The lighthouse in view was constructed around 1856 (some say 1846), and is an octagonal cylindrical cast iron tower with lantern, mounted on a 1 storey octagonal stone base. Base unpainted, the tower is painted white and lantern on the top black. So we have an unusual design, a slender column supporting the lantern and stands on a broader base."
