Day 627 – Pilsum Lighthouse

I’m heading down south today, so here’s one I wrote yesterday:

You know me. I like lighthouses.

Here’s a different one, from Pilsum in Germany.

Built in 1891 in the very North Western corner of Germany, it sits on a dyke, and guarded the entrance to the Ems?hörn channel. But then they moved the channel and so it was no longer required. It’s been just sitting there looking garish since 1915.

Well done to the Germans for keeping it. More defunct lighthouses as landmarks, please.
