A Note from the Artist

New Brighton Lighthouse (also known as Perch Rock Lighthouse and called Black Rock Lighthouse in the 19th century) 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.

The name comes from a Perch; a timber tripod supporting a lantern first erected in 1683 as a crude beacon to allow shipping to pass the rock safely.

The lighthouse was in continuous use until decommissioned in October 1973 having been superseded by modern navigational technology. At low tide, it is possible to walk to the base of the tower.

The lighthouse is currently in private ownership and is a Grade II listed building.
