The Kings Cross Lighthouse

Another day, another widely-known piece of London trivia. God, your author is tedious, huh? Well, today we're looking at the Kings Cross Lighthouse, or The Oysterhouse Lighthouse, as it is sometimes known, as some believed the lighthouse had a connection to Netten's Oyster Bar, nearby.

No one is quite sure why the building was erected, or why there is a lighthouse on top, but it is Grade II listed so it is probably in some way worthy of our attention. No one seems to know what its for, but maybe it'll emerge as something new soon.
