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.
