MARYPORT THE HARBOUR
5161 (South Pier)
NY 03 NW 3/150
Circa 1846. Probably the oldest cast iron lighthouse in Britain. Disused. About
36 feet high. On tall plinth of russicated stone with a flattened Tudor arched panel
in each face (one open) and a cornice; the latter supports an octagonal column with
stepped splayed base, crowned by an octagonal lantern with flat capping, finial and
vane. Included mainly for historic interest, as the precursor of a lighthouse type.
