Herd Groyne Lighthouse - South Shield

Herd Groyne was built in the early 1880's to stop the sand from the beaches in Tynemouth's Harbour washing into and then depositing the Tyne. Effectively, the groyne is a small seawall seperating the beach from the river; therfore only one side of this wall is safe passage for shipping into the river. The Lighthouse was built in 1882 and shows a series of lights indicating directions to be taken upon entering the port's breakwater walls. This system of coloured lights replaced the 2 range or 'high and low' lights at South Shields that would have Shown safe passage by being aligned; these still exist in fantastic condition, with many original features.


All images are printed on Lustre paper, featuring a very natural photographic finish reminiscent of traditional photographic printing. Lustre prints are very resistant to fingerprints, scratches and scuffs and feature a semi-matt finish with minimal glare, ideal for landscape photography.

Only 9"x6" prints and framed prints come with a white mount.
