A Note from the Artist

Sir Peter Scott, son of the famous Captain Scott of the Antarctic was the founder member of the World Wildlife Fund and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.

The lighthouse was constructed in 1830 at Sutton Bridge, Lincolnshire and was essential for navigation on the new river Nene cutting, a deep straight drainage channel designed and excavated to help drain the low laying Lincolnshire Fens. 

The East Bank Lighthouse is 3 miles out into the tidal marshes.

Toward the end of the WWII the sea walls were moved half a mile seaward to reclaim arable land to help feed a nation still under rationing.

The Nene Outfall Amendment Act of 1829 authorised the Commissioners to erect lighthouses or beacons without the sanction of Trinity House.

These lighthouses were more landmarks rather than lighthouses in the usual sense.
