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.
