Old South Pier Lighthouse in Roker Cliff Park, Whitburn Road, Sunderland - Sunderland

Lighthouse, originally built on the old South Pier in Roker in 1856 by the engineer Thomas Meik. Constructed of iron and steel, it was transferred to its current site in 1983. Repair and redecoration works were completed in 2017 following problems of water ingress and localised decay due to corrosion. These were funded by Sunderland City Council. An updated maintenance plan is being finalised for the site.
