Whitley Bay

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)
