The "Old Lighthouse", Paull
The "Old Lighthouse", Paull
Paull Lighthouse was built in 1836 by Trinity House, Hull. The lighthouse went out of use in 1870 when the sandbanks moved and caused the deepwater channel to shift, and new lighthouses were built just along the river bank at Thorngumbald Clough.

The light was powered first by oil and then by a gas burner, the windows of the lamp room facing towards Hull to guide ships into the safe channel which led out into the North Sea [information provided by Holderness Rangers at LinkExternal link].
