Seacow Head Lighthouse

Built in 1864, this 70 foot octagonal lighthouse is one of the oldest wood frame towers standing in the Maritimes. It was automated in 1959. The tower was moved in 1979.

To get to the lighthouse, follow the Blue Heron Drive between Bedeque and Borden-Carleton. Turn off on Route 119 to Fernwood, and by the time you reach the "T" in the road you should have spotted the lighthouse. Follow the road down to it. There is a high bank here. Please keep back from the edge. Note the excellent view of the Confederation Bridge.

Height in meters above ground: 18.3
