The Big Red Thing a.k.a Groyne Lighthouse

Had a pop to South Shields to photo Groyne Lighthouse.  Did you know that it was built in 1882?  It was the original lighthouse before the North and South Piers were built at the mouth of the Tyne.  Today it still acts as a navigational aid in it’s original location on Herd Groyne Pier, as you can see from the photo.  It was a little misty which I think gives a bit of atmosphere to the pic.

You can see more Coastal photography in my Coastal Gallery.
