A Note from the Artist

South Gare Lighthouse was built in 1884 at the end of the breakwater at South Gare, north west of Redcar, North Yorkshire.

Set 16m above mean high water, the light operates automatically exhibiting sectored red and white with a 0.5 second flash every 12 seconds and an effective intensity of 150,000 Candelas. 

The light is powered by a Schlunk 100 Watt water-cooled hydrogen fuel cell, a world first.

This arrangement is more reliable than the mains electricity supply along the exposed breakwater because of its vulnerability in storms.

The lighthouse is a listed building and still operates using the original lenses Today the lighthouse is owned and operated by PD Ports.
