Coquet Island Lighthouse – Northumberland Coast

This lighthouse is situated on Coquet island which lies just off the Northumberland Coast at Amble.

Built in 1841 it is active with a red flashing light. One of it’s keepers was the older brother of local heroine Grace Darling who used to visit home on the island by rowing boat.

Boat trips around the island can be taken from Amble Harbour.

In the first photo below the island is seen in late evening sunshine.
