East Usk Lighthouse, Newport Wetlands
With the Uskmouth power station complex in the background.
The lighthouse sends out 2 flashes every 10 seconds.
It is built on legs but these are now covered as the surface level of the ground was raised with the tipping of ash from the power station. More information can be found on the Newport Harbour Commissioners' web page LinkExternal link .

On the Wales Coast Path.
Wales Coast Path
The Wales Coast Path (Welsh: Llwybr Arfordir Cymru) is a long distance footpath which follows the whole of the coastline of Wales. It opened on 5 May 2012, and offers a 870 mile long route from Chepstow in the south to Queensferry in the north.
Wales is the first country in the world to provide a dedicated footpath along its entire coastline. The Path runs through eleven National Nature Reserves and other nature reserves, including those managed by The Wildlife Trusts or Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
