Northumbrian Lighthouses

Lighthouses on the Northumberland and Tyne + Wear coast between Berwick and Suth Shields

St. Mary’s Island Lighthouse, Whitley Bay

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!

We have a website with more pages of photos of this lighthouse – St Mary’s Island
