410 Leasowe Lighthouse

How do you walk in circles, but not end up in the same place? The answer is by climbing the spiral staircase to the top of Leasowe Lighthouse. With 130 steps it seems a very long way, but from the lamp room there's a magnificent view over Liverpool Bay. The last keeper was Mrs Williams, who had thirteen children and after the lighthouse ceased to function in 1908 she served teas to visitors. So as you climb the cast-iron steps remember Mrs Williams - the first lady lighthouse keeper in the country.
