I will write a narrative blog post shortly but in the meantime here are eleven images from a day on the Wirral recently. I arrived at 7.30am, in the dark, and left at 6.30pm, also in the dark.
New Brighton Lighthouse or Perch Rock Lighthouse, is a decommissioned lighthouse situated at the confluence of the River Mersey and Liverpool Bay on an outcrop off New Brighton known locally as Perch Rock. Together with its neighbour, the Napoleonic era Fort Perch Rock, it is one of the Wirral’s best known landmarks.
