East Lighthouse
Sir Peter Scott > LinkExternal link of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust used to live in the lighthouse on the eastern bank of the River Nene. Whilst there, he spent much of his time painting the geese that flew in from the adjoining marshland. The small nature reserve for wildfowl which he set up here was the predecessor to a much larger one at Slimbridge. Neither East nor its twin, the West Lighthouse > LinkExternal link situated across the river, were functioning lighthouses but built in 1881 as landmarks for ships entering the Nene. Both are private dwellings.
