Schokland Lighthouse

Netherlands - Schokland Lighthouse

Schokland Lighthouse

 Schokland Noordpunt (replica)2007 replica of a late 1800s lighthouse; station established early 1800s. Station inactive since around 1940. 9 m (30 ft) square steel skeletal tower with lantern and gallery, painted black. The 1-1/2 story keeper’s house of the historic lighthouse stands next to the tower, and the original 1-story brick fog signal building also survives. Arjan Keers has a photo, a good 2011 photo is available, and Bing has a satellite view. Schokland was an island in the former Zuiderzee, and the original lighthouse marked the northern end of the island. Since the 1930s, all of the island has been incorporated into the Noordoostpolder. The prefabricated replica lighthouse was trucked to the site and erected in a single day in May 2007. Piet Kelder has a photo of the historic light station (almost 1/4 the way down the page), and Forand has a 1946 postcard view. Located about 4 km (2.5 mi) west northwest of Ens and 3 km (2 mi) east of Nagele. Site open, tower closed. -The Lighthouse Directory
