Additional information:

The location has a light on the western pier head at least since 1870. In the 1930s a second rear high light was added on the landside of the pier. The environment has been changed dramatically since then and the high rear (on a 14 m mast?) disappeared at the end of the 1980s. The pier heads have modern lights today and have only changed very slightly in order to accommodate for a broader entrance.
The fishing fleet of Bunschoten-Spakenburg can be recognized by BU as vessel registration.
