St Mary's Lighthouse

The Lighthouse, completed in 1898 on a hazardous coast for shipping, remained operational until 1984 when it was superseded by modern navigational techniques. Since then the Lighthouse and former keepers' cottages have been operated as a visitor centre by North Tyneside Council.

The surrounding Nature Reserve contains an area of rockpools, clifftop grassland, a beach and newly created wetland habitats.




American science fiction monster film 

directed by Gordon Douglas, starring James Whitmore, 

Edmund Gwenn, Joan Weldon, and James Arness.

Them! is one of the first of the 1950s "nuclear monster" films, 

and the first "big bug" feature film to use insects as the monster.

A nest of gigantic irradiated ants is discovered in the New 

Mexico desert; they quickly become a national threat when

 it is discovered that two young queen ants and their 

consorts have escaped to establish new nests. The national 

search that follows finally culminates in a battle with Them 

in the concrete spillways and storm drain system of 

Los Angeles.
