St Mary's Lighthouse by scotto St Mary's Lighthouse by scotto
St. Mary's Lighthouse is on the tiny St. Mary's Island, just north of Whitley Bay on the coast of North East England. The small rocky tidal island is linked to the mainland by a short concrete causeway which is submerged at periods of high tide. The lighthouse and adjacent keepers' cottages were built in 1898 by the John Miller company of Tynemouth, using 645 blocks of stone and 750,000 bricks. It was built on the site of a monastery where a small sanctuary light would have acted as a guide to passing ships. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1984.

Taken yesterday evening just after the tide washed over the causeway.

Both times I've visited it was rainy/gray weather, and the top of the lighthouse was wrapped in plastic - but it's still a beautiful place! I love it there. :heart: I love Whitley Bay as well. :)

I guess this is what is called "sweet light" - you got that right moment, where the warm light just washes over your image.

There's something magical about the word 'causeway' - always makes me think of Mont St Michel.

What a wonderful place this is - are visitor allowed inside?
