Should fall into the sea within the next 3-5 years. Great location plus a rivet nearby.

A Grade II listed structure, built 1792. It was decommissioned and sold into private ownership 2013 as encroaching sea has put it in jeopardy. It's expected the sea will have claimed it by 2020. Rivet benchmark on concrete apron at NW side.

There's no ferry service at this time of year so I had to be content with a view from Orford village.

Visited several times when on the Ness. Also seen from the mainland. No longer maintained and will be left to be claimed by the sea. Southwold light has taken over responsibility of warning shipping.
