St. Mary's Island and Lighthouse.

St. Mary's Island is situated on the North East Coast of England at Whitley Bay. The Island was originally part of Northumberland but when Tyne and Wear was formed the county boundary included the Island in Tyne and Wear. The lighthouse has been a landmark on the coast for many years, guiding seafarers until it was made redundant and is now a museum.

The Island and lighthouse are reached along a causeway which is covered by the rising tide twice each day. So, if you are caught out on the Island you have a wait!

The photos on these pages have been taken at various times of day - sunrise, morning, evening and at various stages of the tide.
