6/11 Thorngumbald Clough High
Lighthouse. 1870 for Trinity House. Brick and ashlar base; tower with
rivetted wrought-iron frame, casing and balcony; painted red. Drum-shaped
base approximately 1 metre high, with rough-faced ashlar top carrying
slender tapered round lighthouse tower of 3 stages, overall height
approximately 12 metres. Tall first stage: open framework with 8 vertical
ribs linked by 6 horizontal bands and a series of inner tension rods bolted
to small central hoops. Iron ladder to half-balcony supporting a short
ladder up to entrance hatch to second stage with rivetted outer casing.
Upper stage has angle struts supporting balcony with plain railings, small
door with strap hinges to south, projecting rectangular window to north.
Gutter, domed cap with cylindrical ventilator. One of the series of Humber
Estuary Lights which included lighthouses at Spurn Point, Easington parish
(qv) and South Killingholme (qv), on the south bank. Together with the
neighbouring Low Lighthouse to the north (qv), and others at Salt End (now
removed), it replaced the lighthouse at Town End Road, Paull (qv). An
unusual and innovative design. Still in operation. D Jackson, Lighthouses
of England and Wales, 1975, p 105.
