A Note from the Artist

The two lighthouses at Thorngumbald Clough were established in July 1870 and built on the foreshore on half an acre of land purchased at a cost of £ 110 from a Mr. Hugh Baxter the previous year.

When the military officer in charge of the Paull battery first heard of the proposals he complained that they would block his line of fire in defence of the river but was assured that they could be dismantled if necessary in time of war.

The High Light is constructed of wrought iron girders erected on foundations of masonry. The red, wrought iron cylindrical tower is 15 metres high.

The moveable Low Light is a white painted wrought iron cylindrical tower 10 metres high originally built on a railway trolley to enable the light to be moved along in front of the high light to take into consideration the constantly changing shape of the sandbanks. It is now fixed in place.
