A Note from the Artist

The “High Light” lighthouse is one of Blyth’s oldest structures. It stands adjoining a house to the rear of Bath Terrace and is 18.74m tall.

Originally located close to the shoreline, the lighthouse now stands some 100 metres inland as the town has expanded and land has been reclaimed. The High Light worked in conjunction with Blyth Low Light, which was replaced in 1936.

It was constructed in three stages, a process that is clearly apparent in its appearance.

In 1788, the first 10m section was constructed. Exactly a century later, a further 4m was added.

In 1900, it was heightened again by 3.5m, extending it to its current height. Each new storey was was designed to take it clear of the rising heights of the surrounding buildings.

It was de-activated in 1985, and became a Grade II listed building in 1987.
