Skags Fyr (Jävre)

Old lighthouse Skags Fyr in June 2005 at its new place in Jävre. The tower stood former in Gråklubben northeast of Skagsudde. In 1957 the new lighthouse Skagsudde made it superfluous. In 1970, one year before its 100th anniversary, the community Piteå fetched the lighthouse to Jävre, where it was reopened one year later as a sight.
