LH001638: 'The Round House'
The Round House was erected 1830-1831. The original steps were built by 1836 and re-built in 1838 to straddle the entrance to the Whalers Tunnel. They were truncated in 1966 when the railway line was constructed. At the left is a part of the Harbour Master's house (c1880s-1928) and on the right is Pilot's Cottage Number 9, re-erected c1904. It was originally built as part of the light house compound to house port workers. Credit: Arthur Saxon
