From 1717 the newly formed River Wear Commission began to improve the harbour entrance at the mouth of the Wear.
By 1750 a pair of breakwaters had been built (which survive in truncated form as the ‘Old’ North and South Piers).
By the beginning of the next century each had a lighthouse at its end.
Seaburn lighthouse which stands today in Roker Cliff Park originally stood on the Old South Pier.
The light was deactivated in 1903 and the 15m high cast iron tower was moved to its present position when the pier was shortened in 1983.
