Spring of 2017, Allerdale Borough Council have been
working to restore Maryport Lighthouse which is believed
to be one of the oldest cast iron lighthouses in
our Year 5 and 6 children joined the likes of famous
artists LS Lowry and Percy Kelly to draw and paint the
lighthouse whilst others wrote poems about it.
Thursday 18th May, we were invited to the official
opening of the lighthouse and to be part of the
unveiling ceremony. Our artwork has been made into large
images around the lighthouse and our poems have been
published in the official tourist guide. Some of us got
to read out our poems at the ceremony.
