A visit to Spurn Point 22

There are two lighthouses on Spurn; the newer 'High Lighthouse', painted black and white, was built 1893-95; the older 'Low Lighthouse' is visible on the left.

The Lower Lighthouse', was built by engineer John Smeaton and completed in 1776. But by 1892, the structure was becoming cracked and unstable, and the new 'Upper Lighthouse' was constructed to replace Smeaton's light.

The black cylinder on the top of the Lower Lighthouse is a water tank, which has replaced the former lantern turret.

La base de l'ancien phare est en partie enterrée dans le sable. C'était à l'origine sur une plate-forme en bois.
