New Brighton Lighthouse

Also known as Perch Rock Lighthouse, New Brighton Lighthouse stands on the foreshore close to Fort Perch Rock, guarding the estuary of the River Mersey.

A primitive light known as a perch was first exhibited here in 1683. However, with the development of Liverpool’s port, improvements were needed and a new granite tower was established in 1830.

The lighthouse was decommissioned in October 1973 and was restored in 2001.
