The lighthouses of the Merseyside and Wirral areas of Liverpool Bay represent one of the most evocative hooks into the region's maritime past. Their history is irrevocably linked with storms, wrecks and the hazardous coastline of rocks and shifting banks, but also with prosperity and the vibrancy of trade. This site describes all of the surviving historical lighthouses in the area and most of the ones that have been lost.
