Perch Rock Lighthouse.

Stands on the south shore entrance to the River Mersey at New Brighton. It is built of Anglesey granite using dovetail joints and marble dowels. It is 95 feet (29 m) tall, commissioned in 1830 it was in continuous use until 1973. It was restored and repainted in 2001 and there is an ambitious move afoot to recommission the light using solar power and LED technology.
