The Watchet Harbour Lighthouse is a marine navigational aid marking the entrance to a Marina within the historic town of Watchet, in Somerset, England.
The lighthouse is a harbour navigation mark and does not emit a flashing light associated with traditional lighthouses. Instead it displays a fixed green luminaire marking the starboard (right hand side) approach to the marina.
The lighthouse is owned and maintained by Watchet Marina.
The pier was constructed at the same time as the current east pier in 1860 by Hennets of Bridgwater and re erected in 1905. It has continued to provide navigational service throughout the port's history ever since.
