The Port of Darlington is 8 miles to the eastward of Oshawa, 50 miles E. N. E. of Toronto, and 29 miles W. by S. of Cobourg.

The Harbour Company have much improved this snug little port, by extending the piers into 12 feet water, and dredging the land locked basin within, where vessels drawing 9 feet or less may lie in safety in any weather.

The W. pier extends about 50 feet farther south than the E. pier, whereby the roll of the Lake during a S. W. blow is materially broken.


A lighthouse is erected on the E. pier ; but, although the light is bright and good, it, in common with most of the Harbour lights on the Canada side, is far too low to be seen at any great distance in the Lake.
