Harwich Low Lighthouse was built in 1818 to replace the earlier wooden structures dating from the late 17th century. It is now the towns’ Maritime Museum.
There have been three pairs of lighthouses through the ages, from the original wooden pair, which no longer exist, then the brick built ones such as this and finally the cast iron structures that still stand on Dovercourt Seafront. None of these existing lighthouses are used for navigation purposes today. Because of the shifting sands in the channel, the lighthouses were deemed redundant in 1863 and the metal structures at Dovercourt superseded the old High and Low Lighthouses.
The Maritime Museum at the low Lighthouse was officially opened by the Lord Lieutenant of Essex, Admiral Sir Andrew Lewis KCB on 4th October 1980.
