West Beacon

Whitby has 2 beacons at the harbour entrance. The one on the other side (aka East Beacon) is bright red. I was intrigued by the mixture of the historical structure of the beacon itself and the modern-day touch in the form of the solar panel. This looked like it was broken towards the top left hand side, whilst the beacon itself was standing firm albeit a little rusty in places. So much for the standard of construction of modern day stuff!
