This is the Sambro Harbour Lighthouse, another of the lighthouses declared surplus by the Canadian Government. Passed this on the way to and from the Sambro Island Lighthouse.
When I say the lighthouse is surplus – the government will be destroying them or the community can take them over if they can come up with a business plan to operate them. Some have already when taken over by the communities but do not operate as a navigational device anymore.
