Brigus (North Head), Brigus, Newfoundland

The town of Brigus is a heritage town located on Conception Bay north of St. John's, Newfoundland. There are a number of recognized heritage buildings in the town including the lighthouse. The lighthouse is located on the North Head across the bay from the town itself and is accessible by a hike along the Brigus Head trail.  The lighthouse is a cylindrical cast iron tower with red and white vertical stripes and was erected in 1884. It was electrified in 1931 and the former keeper's house demolished at that time. Unfortunately the time did not permit me to make the hike on this trip so I was only able to obtain a distant view from across the bay. Photo taken in July 2014.
