Withernsea Lighthouse
Withernsea Lighthouse
The annual garden party hosted by The Friends of Withernsea Lighthouse (the vehicle on the lawn belongs to the coast guard).

Built in 1893 by London Trinity House and opened on 1st March 1894, the lighthouse was sited in the middle of the town to keep it safe from coastal erosion. The beam reached for seventeen miles on a clear night and flashed the morse code letter 'U' meaning 'You are standing into danger'. The lighthouse closed in 1976 and is now a museum.
