Heugh Lighthouse

Details about Heugh Lighthouse

Work began on the original Lighthouse in 1846. During the First World War Hartlepool was heavily bombed by German warships, so the War Office decided to move the lighthouse, to make more room for the Battery which stood alongside it. The first Heugh Lighthouse was demolished in 1915, and was replaced by a temporary light on the Town Moor. The current lighthouse was built in 1926-7.
