NJ9505 : West Leading Light

taken 4 years ago, near to Torry, Aberdeen, Great Britain

West Leading Light
West Leading Light
The leading lights were erected in 1842. A ship approaching the harbour steers until the two lights appear one above the other, and as long as it maintains that course it is guided into the safe channel. I imagine that they are now no longer required, with all the navigational technology now available. NJ9505 : East Leading Light
