Hern Groyne

Herd Groyne 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. The Lighthouse was built in 1882 and shows a series of lights indicating directions to be taken upon entering the port's breakwater walls.
