The lighthouse

This disused lighthouse at Hale Head, to the south east of Liverpool, was built on the site of an earlier lighthouse dating from 1838 and was completed in 1907. It is now a private residence.

 

The original light was built 70 years earlier with a shorter stack. The tower is 45ft tall, or according to another source 58ft tall, the lamp was 70ft above sea level.
