Introduction

1907. Active; focal plane 13 m (43 ft); continuous red light. 10 m (33 ft) round concrete tower with lantern and gallery. No photo available, but Michel Forand has a historic postcard view. We need current information on this light: the breakwater has been replaced by a broad quay, but a Google satellite view suggests the lighthouse may still be standing. The channel between this light and the Island Breakwater North End Light is now closed with a chain. Located at the end of the northeast breakwater, marking the north side of the northern entrance. Site status unknown. Admiralty F0782; NGA 27324.
