This has got to be the strangest pair of range lights I've ever seen.  They are located on the promenade in the small seaside resort of Redcar in Cleveland.  As Redcar has no harbour as such I assume that the lights are there for the benefit of the small inshore fishing boats that are dragged ashore when not in use and "parked" on the esplanade.  The front ight is mounted on a 30 foot high metal post and the rear light is supported by a metal bracket fixed to the wall of a shop.  The shop in question is the local branch of Marks and Spencer which I suppose, in Redcar at least, makes M & S a "leading light" in the retail benefit.  Sorry, that actually wasn't terribly funny, but I can never resist a sitting target.
