Roker Pier Tunnel Entrance - September 2017

11th September 2017

Work is progressing well on the new tunnel entrance. It's awaiting its granite cladding and glass walls.

The tunnel within the pier was created to provide wet weather access to the base of the lighthouse for the land based lighthouse keeper. It lost its hut decades ago and access was ended when the keepers left the lighthouse. 

This new building will  provide a managed entrance to the tunnel so that the walk to the recently restored lighthouse can be experienced again.
