Amanda Ainsley | Sunset at The Herd Groyne

Sunset at The Herd Groyne

This is The Herd Groyne lighthouse. Situated at The mouth of the River Tyne near Little Haven Beach, South Shields and opposite Tynemouth town. It was built in the early 1880's to stop the sand from the beaches in Tynemouth's Harbour washing into and then depositing the Tyne. Effectively, the groyne is a small seawall seperating the beach from the river; therfore only one side of this wall is safe passage for shipping into the river.
