This is a unpainted tower with a white gallery and lantern. It is immediately next to a railway depot. It used to guide the railway ferries between Morecambe and Ireland. We are not sure if it is still in service, but the Admiralty List of Lights still listed it in 1999.

The photographs are both from our friend Jane! Thank you !!
