St. Mary's Lighthouse Coaster

St. Mary's Lighthouse Coaster

St. Mary's Lighthouse, Whitley Bay

 

The lighthouse is situated on St. Mary's Island, just off the coast of Whitley Bay, which was known as Bate's Island during medieval times when it was owned by the Bates family and occupied by a small chapel dedicated to St. Helen that burned a lamp to warn incoming ships of the rocks. This lamp was known as St. Katherine's Light, but at some point was wrongly ascribed to St. Mary which stuck and is why the Island and then later the Lighthouse were named after St. Mary.

 

The island is only accessible via a causeway during low tide when the North Sea falls back and reveals the passage that connects the island to the mainland (this usually happens twice within a 24 period). The crossing timetable can be found on North Tyneside Council's website so you can plan ahead for your visit.

 

Although the lighthouse is no longer operational, the island is a bustling tourist attraction with a visitor's centre and nature reserve home to grey seals, a number of coastal birds and other wildlife which can often be spotted on the rocks surrounding the lighthouse.
