Standing at the mouth of the River Lune in Lancashire Plover Scar Lighthouse was built more than 150 years ago and is still functioning, although the ‘back light of two’ was demolished when the lighthouse was automated. It marks the channel of the Lune, but imagine before it was built, there were over 100 merchant ships registered at Lancaster, this must have been a very busy shipping lane. Now only a few boats heading in towards Glasson Dock make use of the channel.
On a grey misty day the hills of Cumbria can just be made out in the background.
