Beach Lighthouse [Lower Light], Fleetwood
Fleetwood's Beach and Pharos lighthouses SD3348 : Pharos Lighthouse [Upper Light], Fleetwood form a pair. When sailors see the light from the taller Pharos directly above that from the shorter Beach, they know that they have a safe passage through the offshore sandbanks at the mouth of the Wyre estuary. The lighthouses were first lit in 1840.
