Mr Monkey in Fleetwood, 20th February

"I was rather expecting the sea to get all the way to the horizon"

Mr Monkey looking at the Low Lighthouse Mr Monkey looking out to sea

Mr Monkey examined the Low Lighthouse, another of Decimus Burton's designs. Ships approaching Fleetwood have to line up the Low Lighthouse and the High Lighthouse to get into the Wyre safely. The Low Lighthouse is 30ft above sea level, and is visible for 9 miles. Mr Monkey trotted past the lighthouse and looked out to sea, which turned out to have a lot of sandbanks visible in it.
