Nore Light ship
The Nore is a sandbank at the mouth of the Thames. It is marked by various buoys and a lightship with a revolving light. This ship lies about three miles from the nearest point on the Kent coast and about the same distance from the Essex coast. It is about 47 miles below London Bridge. The first light was placed there as an experiment by Mr Hamblin in 1731. Trinity House established its first vessel there in 1793.
