Whitby's former foghorn
Whitby's former foghorn
The one acre of land was bought by Trinity House in 1858 and originally housed a lighthouse. In 1900 the lighthouse was demolished and replaced by the foghorn station, which became known to locals as the 'Hawsker Bull' on account of its mournful bull-like call.

It was decommissioned in 1988, but the two 20ft long and 8ft high horns are still in place on the roof. The building is now a self catering holiday property called Hornblower Lodge.
