front light Ijmuiden

Front light Ijmuiden in June 2004. It stands together with the radar centre and a restaurant on a little hill in the harbour territory. To reach the parking place above you have to drive two complete circles around.
The front light was truncated about 1909. The separated top section stands today as a independent lighthouse on a dune at the island of Vlieland. In the lower picture its big brother, the rear light, is visible in the background.
