Description:
It's normal to see a lighthouse along the seashore or overlooking a harbor. But sometimes we find them where there is no water! Record these out-of-place lighthouses here. Look below for detailed waymarking and visiting requirements.
Expanded Description:
Waymark Requirements: Find a lighthouse that is NOT located near an ocean, lake, river or other body of water. If the lighthouse is now, or was previously, used as an aid to marine navigation at the posted coordinates, then it shouldn't be listed in this category. Navigational aid lights belong in the "Coastal Lighthouses" Waymarking Category. A lighthouse that previously served as an aid to marine navigation, but was moved to a different spot inland as a novelty feature for a restaurant, would be a perfect candidate for the landlocked lighthouse category. "Near" an ocean, lake, river, etc. means within reasonable sight of the navigable body of water. It's OK to list a lighthouse that is two miles from the beach in a seaside resort town. It's also fine if the lighthouse is next to a smaller body of water, like a pond or stream, if the intended use of the lighthouse was not for navigation. Please do NOT list lawn and garden ornamental lighthouses here -- full-size buildings (taller than 20 feet / six meters) only! It does not matter whether or not the lighthouse is functional, or even has a light. We're looking for the unusual structures here.
Instructions for Posting a Landlocked Lighthouses Waymark:
Post the coordinates and location for the landlocked lighthouse, and provide an explanation of what it's used for and why it's there, if you know. Please post a photo to assist in determining whether the lighthouse meets the category requirements. Your photo doesn't need to show you or your GPS -- go for a quality artsy picture. Display it on the waymarking page if you want, or just attach it in the gallery.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Please post a photo of the lighthouse, showing either you or your GPS in the photo.
