The pierbuilding started under the reign of Queen Elisabeth I in 1576 (forerunner of the present pier), 960 yards long, at the cost of 61.536.-- pounds.
Rebuilding of the damaged pier took place from 1810 until 1821 and in 1826 the lighthouse was placed.

The Lightpole is standing in the water to the left.
