St. Mary's Lighthouse is located in the north of England, in Tyne and Wear and can be accessed by the causeway
at low tide. You can ring the lighthouse directly on +44 (0) 191 200 8650 to find out the times and a tide schedule is also posted in the car park.
You can pay the admission charge and walk the 137 steps to the top - I haven't been (wrong tide!) but I hear the views are spectacular.
Only a couple of minutes after I took this photo a violent hailstorm broke washing away my chances of spending a little more time shooting this landmark
Today St. Mary's Lighthouse is no longer in use but houses a museum. You can find out more about St. Mary's Lighthouse here.
