|Description: This light vessel was built by Philip and Son, Dartmouth, in 1958. She was located 45 miles north of Cromer and 25 miles north east of Mablethorpe. She was Trinity House's last manned light vessel. In 1991 she was replaced by an automated platform. The Dowsing and her predecessors had given a guide to vessels navigating this stretch of the North Sea since 1861.|
