The Ferryland Lighthouse, Newfoundland
Seen from the long but adventurous trek out along the Peninsula to the tip of Ferryland Head from the town harbor.
Perched fifty eight metres (190 feet) above sea level on the very tip of Ferryland Head in Newfoundland, theFerryland lightstation has been well known to mariners and local residents since its construction in 1871.
Located along a major shipping route, the Lighthouse has provided navigational aid to countless ships crossing the Atlantic and journeying between Newfoundland and the North American mainland along the often treacherous Southern Shore of the Avalon Peninsula. Painted the traditional lightstation colours of white and red, it is clearly visible both from landward and seaward approaches.
