The Bow Creek Lighthouse Jan 04, 2010
An original light at the Trinity Buoy Wharf was built in 1852 and demolished in the late 1920s. The Bow Creek Lighthouse, currently on the site, was built in 1864-66 and is no longer in service. Located in Leamouth, where Bow Creek enters the River Themes, it is London's only lighthouse. The site was originally used as a maintenance depot and storage facility for the buoys that provided aid to navigation on the River Themes. The lighthouse itself was primarily used for testing lights for use around England and Wales and for training prospective lighthouse keepers. The light can be seen from the River Themes boat tour between Greenwich and the Themes Barrier as it rounds the bend at the Dome.
