Lighthouses of England


Whitley Bay (also known as St. Mary's Island) (Ken Trethewey, 2012)
This lighthouse is very popular with tourists because of its proximity to Newcastle-upon-Tyne.



Inside the tower (Ken Trethewey, 2012)
The lighthouse is not an active station and is managed by volunteers.



The optic (Ken Trethewey, 2012)
This fine example of a catadioptric system is not the original optic.



This wonderful old catoptric system is on display at the foot of the tower. (Ken Trethewey, 2012)
