Where

East Cote lighthouse is located on the seafront at Silloth, and was built in 1841 to guide vessels between Port Carlisle and Annan on the Solway Firth.

A local man, Edward Dalglish, was the Lighthouse Keeper.

In the 1850s the tower was mounted onto a short track so that the light could be moved according to the channel, and operated in transit with Silloth Pierhead Lighthouse.

The current lighthouse was rebuilt in 1997 by Associated British Ports to replicate its original style.
