Pharology - Lighthouses of Wales

East Usk

Lighthouses used to aid both sides of the estuary into Newport docks. Today, only the light on the Eastern shore remains active. (Ken Trethewey, 2018)

The characterful cast iron light is situated in a nature reserve and is well preserved by its guardians. (Ken Trethewey, 2018)

The lighthouse used to stand on iron legs and was much taller, but the ground level has been raised by some 3 m (10 feet) by infill of ash from a nearby power station, so it is effectively shorter, even though the height of the light above sea level has remained the same. (Ken Trethewey, 2018)
