Northumbrian Lighthouses

Tynemouth Lighthouse, River Tyne North Pier.

Located at the end of the River Tyne North Pier Tynemouth Lighthouse was built in 1903.

The lighthouse is operational and is used by ships approaching and entering the River Tyne along with South Shields Lighthouse, Herd Groyne and North Shields Lighthouses. The third photo on this page shows one such ship entering the River Tyne.

On a calm fine day the pier is a a pleasant place to walk along to the lighthouse, but in windy weather and high tide the waves can break as high as the lighthouse as seen below. In these conditions the pier is closed.
