near to Paull, East Riding of Yorkshire, Great Britain

Thorngumbald Clough Lights, Paull
Thorngumbald Clough Lights, Paull
Erected in around 1870 when a shift in the sandbanks and deepwater channel of the River Humber meant that the old Paull Lighthouse was no longer much help to shipping. Vessels leaving Hull would line up the 'High Light' (painted red) above the 'Low Light' (painted white) in order to find safe passage along the deepwater channel.
