Herd Groyne Lighthouse Coaster

Herd Groyne Lighthouse Coaster

Herd Groyne Lighthouse, South Shields

 

This iron Victorian lighthouse built in 1882, before the construction of the North and South piers were completed which were built between 1854 and 1895, is still used to guide ships in and out of the Tyne today from up to 13 miles away and is just one of a few left in the country with an operational fog bell. 

 

HERD comes from the stretch of beach the lighthouse resides upon, known today as "Littlehaven", it was formerly known as "Herd Sands" and GROYNE is the name for a stone structure that is built to control land erosion which in this case refers to the pier (aptly named The Groyne Pier) the lighthouse was built upon. The Groyne Pier was built between 1861 and 1867 to help guide the flow of the River Tyne and protect Littlehaven beach from being swept away by the tide.
