In 1906 the Glouchester Harbour Trustees with responsibility for navigation on the Severn, decided that further navigational aids were necessary to indicate to vessels when to turn and to lead them clear to the Entrance at Sharpness.
During that year, it was decided to erect two leading lights on the south side of Berkeley Pill for this purpose.
These lights took the form of fixed white lights on timber poles, the poles and fittings were obtained from Sheperdine where the light had recently been increased in power and mounted on iron framed towers.
A grant of land for the sites at Berkeley Pill was obtained from Lord Fitzhardinge with the cost of the work, amounting to £345, being met by the Trustees.
