A Note from the Artist

Scarborough Pier Lighthouse located on Vincent Pier in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, dates from 1806, but had to be rebuilt following damage sustained in the German bombardment of 1914.

On 16 December 1914, the Imperial German Navy conducted a raid on Scarborough, Hartlepool and Whitby. Scarborough was hit by 520s shells and eighteen townspeople were killed. The last shot fired at the town hit the lighthouse dead centre. While the shell did not explode, it caused sufficient structural damage to leave the tower highly unstable. 

Three days later, the top half was demolished. As it was only insured for £500, the Scarborough Townsmen’s Guild needed to raise donations from the public to cover the cost of the repairs.

A fund of £2,225 was eventually collected and on 22 December 1931 the rebuilt lighthouse was relit. North Yorkshire, owned and operated by Scarborough Borough Council.[2] The lighthouse dates from 1806, but it had to be rebuilt following damage sustained in the German bombardment of 1914.
