This beautiful art print shows the Herd Groyne Lighthouse at the mouth of the River Tyne, South Shields. Illustrated in the retro Travel Poster or Railway Poster style popular in the early twentieth century, it gives a nostalgic twist to a modern contemporary artwork. It is perfect for any lover of the area or of lighthouses and would look beautiful in any home. Ideal as gift for someone special or as a treat to yourself.
The artwork has been created by Mara Louvain Robinson, is exclusive to Alchemi Art and it is not available from any other retailers or online sites.
This unusual lighthouse was built on the south side where the River Tyne meets the North Sea in 1882 before the building of the long harbour walls. Painted bright red it stands 13m tall. It is still used as a navigation aid today and has one of the few remaining operational fog horns in the county.
