A Note from the Artist

The first proper quay to be built at Whitehaven was the Old Quay in 1633, but it’s unlikely that it had any navigational lights at the time.

The first West Pier Lighthouse was built in 1832 and construction work on the pier itself was completed around 1839 with the final build of the West Pier extension.

The West Pier lighthouse is the white tower with the red trim and is 14 metres high in total but its full height cannot be seen from the sea because the breakwater’s wall is several metres taller on the seaward side. It shows a flashing green light every five seconds with a range of 21km.

The North Pier was completed in 1841 and a 6m tall conical brick tower, the North Pier light displays two fixed red lights from a mast atop the structure.

The Harbour Commissioners are responsible to Trinity House to maintain these harbour lights for the benefit of mariners.
