South Shields

As you sail by South Shields watch for the red-and-white-striped Souter Lighthouse. Built in 1871, it was the most advanced lighthouse in the world at that time, as it was the first one to be powered by electricity. Although it no longer warns off ships the Souter Lighthouse remains an iconic beacon for the area.

To the north of the lighthouse lies The Leas, a two and a half mile stretch of magnesian limestone cliffs, wave-cut foreshore and coastal grassland. And the cliffs and rock stacks of Marsden Bay are home to nesting Kittiwakes, Fulmar, Cormorants, Shags and Guillemots. South of the lighthouse is Whitburn Coastal Park and Nature Reserve - reclaimed colliery land, now a haven for wildlife.
