Chaine Tower, Larne
Across the entrance to Larne Harbour lies Chaine Tower, presumably modelled on the ancient round towers of Ireland. It was constructed in 1888 as a memorial to one James Chaine, the local MP. but a light was only added in 1899. It is connected to the mainland by a causeway and is to be found north of the docks in Larne. Due to time constraints, I restricted myself to views from Ferris Point
Below, the view from Barr's Fog Signal - Ferris Point on the left and Chaine Tower on the right.
