Hull Marina, Spurn Lightship
Hull Marina, Spurn Lightship
The Spurn Lightship (LV No 12) was built in 1927 and served for 48 years as a navigation aid in the approaches of the Humber Estuary, where it was stationed 4 miles east of Spurn Point helping to guide ships safely through the treacherous River Humber. The lightship was decommissioned in 1975 and bought/restored by Hull City Council in 1983 before being moved to Hull Marina where it is now anchored and as a museum. As at July 2017, the ship is open for viewing by "boarders" (visitors) on Sundays between June and September LinkExternal link Hull City Council.
