Additional information:

Please see NET-158 Kraggenburg. The utmost tip of the 6 km long pier head of Kraggenburg had a light since at least 1848. In 1919 it is replaced by a steel structure, light range unknown, deactivated in 1940. A replica of the 1919 light was built in 1992 and placed on its original place on the pier head. Today the location is landlocked.

NET-052 is in 2006 registered by the ARLHS as Kraggenburg South Tower H. There is no further information available, except that it is classified as “historic”. There is physical evidence left on location, although in the form of a replica. It raises the question why this particular replica carry the “H” and other replica’s don’t.
