Cullercoates Navaids

Cullercoates Navigation Beacons Near Tynemouth - River Tyne.

The pole, which has been on the site for many years, is part of a series of masts that help to guide boats around the rocks at Cullercoats.There are two structures that light up in red at night to inform mariners what direction to take and a further two, including the one behind Beacon House, that direct boats during the day.Beacon House was built around 1890 at a lower height from the surrounding homes to allow a view of the harbour beacon in the backyard.(Tyne Chronicle)
