St. Mary's Lighthouse, Whitley Bay, Tyne & Wear Coast.
St. Mary's Island was originally part of Northumberland but when
Tyne and Wear was formed the county boundary included the Island
in Tyne and Wear.
Built in 1898 the lighthouse has been a landmark on the coast for
many years, guiding seafarers until it was made redundant and is
now a museum.
The Island and lighthouse are reached along a causeway which is
covered by the rising tide twice each day. So, if you are caught
out on the Island you have a wait!
