Bangor Pier Head Light

Not quite sure why this little baby doesn't rate a s a lighthouse in Russ Rowlett's Directory? It certainly qualifies under his terms of reference - "a lighthouse is a lightbeacon having a height of at least 4 meters (13 ft) and a cross-section, at the base, of at least 4 square meters (43 sq ft)." This feller, sitting on the end of the pier in Bangor, co Down certainly fits the bill. You can reach it by walking the pier. Alas, I could only find a parking space around the other side of the marina, so took the easy route up the private commercial pier opposite, for which I will surely pay in the fires of Hell.
