Taken from the same spot as yesterday's pic, this is a familiar landmark in PE. It is a beacon that was erected to mark a dangerous reef, and the position of the bell-bouy, for shipping. According to a notice posted on the gate, it is planned to construct a tea room around the beacon, and raise it by 3m. We look forward to seeing it completed, it will be a prime spot to relax and watch the sea over a nice cup of coffee.
(The powers that be that are proposing to ruin historic Richmond Hill with a 4 storey building and 50m lattice tower could learn a thing or two about correct proceedures for public participation from these guys too!)
