East Cote lighthouse is located on the English side of the Solway Firth, and was built in 1841 to guide vessels between Port Carlisle and Annan on the Solway Firth.
A local man, Edward Dalglish, was the Lighthouse Keeper.
In the 1850s the tower was mounted onto a short track so that the light could be moved according to the channel, and operated in transit with Silloth Pierhead Lighthouse, being the rear of two leading lights indicating safe approach to the channel.
In 1914 it was fixed in this position and at that time had a small cabin on a plinth below the tower for the keeper.
The light was automated in 1930 and the front leading light was withdrawn from service in 1959.
The current lighthouse was rebuilt in 1997 in its original style by Associated British Ports who operate the Port of Silloth.
