Trinity House Totland Bay Pilot Station Sign Board - Click for the bigger picture

Trinity House Totland Bay Pilot Station Sign Board

Manufactured from hardwood (probably teak) with a varnished finish and recessed lettering picked out in red paint. Totland Bay pier, situation on the Isle of Wight off Southern England was built in 1881 and acted as a landing stage for steamers. In WWI it became a military look out station and in WWII was sectioned for fear of a German invasion. In 1971 it was purchased by Trinity House for £10, 000 for use as a base for TH pilot boats. In 1978 the pier was damaged by fire and closed. Our sign is a unique souvenir that will appeal to Trinity House collectors or to those with associations with Totland Bay. Measures: 29" x 15" (78 cm x 38 cm)
