Rampside Needle Lighthouse

Rampside Needle Lighthouse

Rampside Needle Lighthouse:

This tall, slim lighthouse is situated in Rampside close to Barrow-in Furness.

It is known locally as the Rampside Needle and can be seen easily from Piel Island nearby.

Built-in 1875, the two-tone brickwork is typical of Furness Railway buildings that characterised the development of Barrow-in-Furness as an industrial enterprise.

It is the only surviving example of 13 such beacons erected around Barrow to guide vessels into the port.

It is 20 metres (66ft) tall and built of red and yellow bricks.

This distinctive, elegant landmark is set south-east of Barrow-in-Furness just off Roa Island Road.

Rampside Lighthouse is Grade II designated building by English Heritage.
