Old Light House [NAT]

OS (GIS) AIB, July 2006.

Newhaven Harbour is a small harbour used mainly by pleasure craft. The harbour and breakwaters are well maintained, both lighthouses are upstanding and in good condition. The fishmarket is now split into two buildings, the southern half is now a Harry Ramsdens fish restaurant. The northern half appeared to be empty but may be used as a store.

Site recorded by GUARD during the Coastal Assessment Survey for Historic Scotland, 'The Firth of Forth from Dunbar to the Coast of Fife' 23rd February 1996.

(Newhaven 1: location cited as NT 254 773). At former end of E pier: Grainger & Miller, prob. 1837. Short circular-section stone tower with moulded cornice and blocking course. Now topped by cement-rendered dome.
