How money was raised

Teesside Development Corporation.


1. The light was erected in 1839 originally in the yard of a tine processing plant at Longhill, Seaton Carew, but became surrounded by industrial buildings, Its removal to the new site at Jackson’s Landing was paid for by Teesside Development Corporation.

2. The High Light when at Longhill gave out a white light. It worked with Seaton Low Light which gave a red signal.
