Title: Bouys used by Trinity House.
Description: Trinity House used a variety of buoys, several of which are shown here. Most buoys have two main colours, black and red, either used plain or with white. There are also green wreck buoys. Sometimes they have flashing lights or bells that ring with the movement of the waves and serve to warn approaching ships. Buoys vary in size and are usually conical, cylindrical or spherical in shape.
