Beacons on the Lawe Top at South Shields

Before the piers were built and the river dredged, the river channel was negotiated by lining up the beacon towers, one above the other.

There are similar beacons on the the North bank. (See High and Low Lights in Local History)
A new beacon was added in 2020
