1906 - Pencarrow Coastal Road. The site of New Zealand's first lighthouse it marks the eastern entrance to Wellington Harbour. Initially in 1841, two wooden markers were built in but these blew away. A make shift beacon was then built & was tended by George Bennett & his wife Mary. In 1858 the iron tower arrived from England. By the time it was built George Bennett had drowned in a boating accident so his wife Mary became New Zealand's first official lighthouse keeper. The light was first lit 1 January 1859. The light was often shrouded by low fog so a new tower was constructed on the beach in 1906. Both lights burned together until Bearing Head lighthouse was built in 1935 and the original light was decommissioned.
