Navigation marker & Fort Tourgis on Alderney by 


A navigation cone used by shipping with one end of Fort Tourgis behind it.
This cone is huge, at least 20 feet tall, and can be see from a number of directions from sea, it is used to line up ships. I don’t know how old it is, but it is referenced in a book from 1830, but I suspect it is a lot older.

  • Indeed! It is amazingly big when you stand next to it! I think that physics was different in Victorian times LOL!
