Saint Mary's Lighthouse












St Mary's Lighthouse, near Whitley Bay, is on a tidal island which  is linked to the mainland by a  concrete causeway which is submerged at periods of high tide.


The lighthouse and adjacent keepers' cottages were built in 1898.  The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1984.

  2. Very handsome. The lighthousekeeper certainly has an appealing cottage to live in.
