Used for navigation?

Good question, this light does appear on several official lists and given the location at the end of an inner breakwater it's definitely a possibility. The coast guard has a page for the light here: and another page with more information here:

UKHO Admiralty list doesn't contain this light for some reason. I actually also don't have good charts for this area Crying or Very sad
