stony beacon Brielle

"Het Steenen Baken" Brielle in June 2004. Although in literature and in www. is always spoken of Brielle, the beacon stands nearer to the town Oostvoorne, at the Heindijk near a recreation centre. The beacon had the function of a visual sign, but some times it wore also a coal fire.
