This is the 1807 Low Light, built on the sight of an earlier light and built to the same design as the current High Light.  Again, the photo was taken from South Shields and, in the foreground to this photo is the Tynemouth RNLI Severn Class lifeboat "Spirit of Northumberland"

The photo below shows all three of the North Shields range lights and gives some idea of the various alignments involved when they were operational.
