The Lighthouse at New Brighton ( known as the Perch Rock Lighthouse) is situated where the Mersey Estuary opens out into Liverpool Bay. Formerly a wooden perch was built on the rock, a serious navigational hazard, by the city of Liverpool, in 1683. Ships that passed the perch were charged 6old pennies for maintenance costs, which were high in this case, the perch often being washed away by gales.
