Whitby 'Choccie Box' Style 4/14

At the end of the pier I showed yesterday is this tall monument which, as you can see, is well weatherd by wind and rain after standing for many years in such an exposed position.

 

It was erected by the Trustees of Whitby Harbour and Piers but apart from that information I can't find out anything else about it.

Its a giant phallus, Brian...they seem to get erected everywhere...
Brian Walbey: In which case I've got a bit of inferiority complex then Ray smile
Alright Ray- that'll be all from you! smile

Brian... I like the lighting- you hit this at just the right time of day I think!
Brian Walbey: I've answered Ray accordingly Elizabeth smile This was the same evening light as Tuesday's picture.

An amazing thing: just look at that weathering!
Brian Walbey: Yes and I can't find anything out about it.
Nice collection of benches Brian.

;-)
Brian Walbey: I'm surprised Master Tiff didn't notice those Richard, they put his example to shame.
What a great lighting here, it feels warm by just looking at it already
Brian Walbey: Yes it was the same evening light as Tuesdays image Chantal.
Looks as though there may have been a light in the structure at the top??
Brian Walbey: Yes I thought that Tom, i can't find any info.on it at all.

What an extraordinary design for a lighthouse Brian. A classical column which reminds me of one of the entries for the Herald Tribune building in Chicago. http://www.jitterbuzz.com/trib_tower.html
Brian Walbey: Certainly is a similarity Chad.

Looks like a little lighthouse to me Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes I reckon it was something of that sort Bill.

You really had the light on your side on this day Brian, Lovely smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda. It was the same evening light as Tuesdays posting.
Nice shot Brian, not a lighthouse then? Does it have any connection with the two lights in the background ? To be seen from sea perhaps? I need a full explanation Brian!
Brian Walbey: Sorry I can't explain more Frank, but next week, Tuesday I think, you will see all these lights and how they are laid out which might explain things a bit more.
Actually it is on Sunday Frank.
Very impressive whatever it is looking good in this light. Nice shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. It was the same evening light as Tuesdays posting.

I'm sure it wil lsee agood many more winters before it finally meets its end. I take it that the people who installed the black benches appeared to be oblivious to the white benches?
Brian Walbey: Yes I suppose it will Alan. I have a close-up of just the main column and the wear is amazing. What's the betting whoever arranged for the black benches hadn't even been to see what was already there.
Hi Brian. A very nice subject.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances.

It certainly looks worse for wear, but then years of looking at the North Sea can do that to you ;o)
Brian Walbey: I guess it probably would Mike, I bet the wind and rain really comes in hard over this quay in the winter.
Quite a strange tower. A good viewpoint I would imagine if access could be gained.
Brian Walbey: I guess it is some sort of lighthouse tower from years past John, the weathering is amazing.
