West Sutton Lighthouse

Located on the banks of the River Nene, West Sutton Lighthouse, also known as Guys Head Lighthouse, and its counterpart on the opposite bank was built to mark the new Nene channel which opened in 1831. Neither lighthouse was ever lit.

West Sutton Lighthouse was used as a former Customs and Excise station, housing the commissioners.

On the opposite bank East Sutton Lighthouse was the former home of conservationist Sir Peter Scott.

Look out for the road sign depicting the two lighthouses as you enter Sutton Bridge.
