Northumbrian Lighthouses

North Shields Lighthouses, River Tyne.

Located at at the Fish Quay on the banks of the River Tyne at North Shields these lights act as a navigational aid to ships entering the River Tyne.

They were built in the 19th century and replace earlier lights at the same location.

The first photo on this page shows both lights seen from Tynemouth in early morning sun (taken with a very long lens).

In the second view of both lights taken from North Shields Fish Quay a small sailing ship is tied up at the quayside.

The third photo taken from beside the upper light, shows the lower light and beyond, on either side, Tynemouth and South Shields Piers and Lighthouses at the mouth of the River Tyne.

For more views taken at this location please visit our Tyne Photos website.
