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."
