Pole with small light cage at end of breakwater. No access as tide in.

Uninspiring pole sticking out of the water at end of a breakwater, or line of rocks.

It may have been Easter Monday but even Jesus would have struggled not to get wet feet reaching this one!

Spotted this one easily enough but the other two beacons to the northwest eluded me.

Well I guess this should maybe be Unreachable but Visible, but then so would all the church spires etc. Walked out the edge of the breakwater to get as close as possible. Tide was in and a big tanker just visible out in deep water. Edit: aha it is reachable in the right conditions, more information here: http://www.geograph.org.uk/gridref/NT2976
