Point of Ayr Lighthouse

Located near the village of Talacre, the Point of Ayr Lighthouse was built 1776 to guide ships entering the estuaries of the Mersey and Dee.

The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1884 and sold in 1922 to private ownership.

The tower was badly damaged during storms in 2007. It was restored by its owners, who also owned the local caravan park.
