St Mary's Lighthouse


If you look at the North Sea coastline of North East England on a map, there is a small peninsula which forms the northern side of Whitley Bay, a bit to the north of the mouth of the River Tyne.  At the tip of this peninsula is a small sandbar of an island called St. Mary's Island.  The most prominent landmark on the island is the iconic St. Mary's Lighthouse.  Commissioned in 1898 and closed in 1984, it's now open to the public.  You can check out this Grade II listed landmark from above in this drone video by top contributor newcastlemale.
