Withernsea Lighthouse is an inland lighthouse that stands in the middle of the town of Withernsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
The lighthouse stands 38m high and took 18 months to build between 1892 and 1894. Formerly owned and run by Trinity House, it ceased operation on 1 July 1976 and is now used as a museum.
The lighthouse is a surprising distance (nearly 1⁄4 mile or 400 metres) from the sea front. At the time it was built, there was nothing between it and the sea but sand dunes, and fear of coastal erosion led to it being positioned well back.
The base of the lighthouse features RNLI and HM Coastguard exhibits, with models and old photographs. These record the history of ship-wrecks in the area and detail the Withernsea lifeboats and crews who saved 87 lives between 1862 and 1913.
It also depicts the history of the nearby Spurn lifeboats.
