The lighthouse, smaller than its counterpart on the Western side, sits on the end of Whitby’s East Pier. It is 55 feet high, with a lantern on top, and was built in 1854. There is a newer, less attractive light a little way beyond it which serves as the main navigation aid into the harbour.
In the soft rock of the east coast it is quite easy to find fossil ammonites and the imprints of them left behind. This rock was just picked up off the beach, the memory of the prehistoric sea creatures etched sharply on the smooth stone – until the sea eventually erodes them away.
OK, so not exactly a window as such. This photograph was taken through a holey stone found on the beach. Tiny pebbles had gradually eroded a perfect circle in this softer rock, which I then had to play with in lieu of a proper filter!
