Terence Bay lighthouse
The lantern room was removed from the lighthouse around 1980. In 2011, Terence Bay residents, backed by the Halifax Regional Council, asked to assume control of the lighthouse, which has been placed on Canadian Coast Guard’s surplus list. The residents would like to do is put the original top back on the lighthouse. The local group needs to secure the right-of-way to the lighthouse and also preserve access to a small beach and walking trails in the area.
The first light on Shipley Head was a lantern hoisted up a mast, it was established in 1885. The present tower replaced the mast light in 1903 and was built using local people from the area. In poor condition, the lantern room was removed around 1980.
Tower Height: 7.92 meters (26ft)
Light Height: 14.6 meters (48ft) above water level
Scenic Drive: Lighthouse Route
