    :D So some brief history on this place, the main lighthouse became obsolete in 1870 it was then replaced by two "leading lights" these were more sophisticated than the first lighthouse in that they had to be aligned, so when they were seen in a straight line one above the other, the ship's captain would know he was on the correct course for the deep water channel. the lights are still operational although there was some discussion about moving them in 2003.

    The two leading lights

    It is a nice chilled out gander up there, I've been up the red one before, just a shame it isn't bigger. I never knew about the 2 "leading lights" thing, I always like it when I learn something from a report

    Thank you most kindly for sharing those views of your visit to the High & Low Lights of Thorngumbold (not Paull) although they are close by. Admiralty List No A2506/08

    I have been considering a trip to visit both banks of the Humber, which holds much industrial interest. You did well to supply such interesting photos.

    Thank you for posting.

    My kind regards to you from
