Latest news

The Trustees of The Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse Charitable Incorporated Organisation are pleased to announce that as of Friday the 5th of August 2016 they have successfully negotiated, signed and completed a 99 year lease arrangement with Wirral Council for the use of the two hundred and fifty three year old Leasowe Lighthouse building and it’s surrounding grounds for the trusts objectives and purposes.

 The Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse CIO are now responsible for all aspects of the daily running of the building and the upkeep of the building fabric and services as specified in the lease of the oldest brick built lighthouse in the UK.

 In addition to the above the CIO recently gained heritage planning approval for the installation of a new set of ground floor main doors, which the trustees are hoping to have in place as soon as they can be manufactured and installed.

 Plans for further restoration and improvement projects will now be discussed by the trustees and prioritised to enable the necessary approvals and funding to be sought for work to be carried out over the coming years.

 In the meantime the Lighthouse will be open as usual on the 1st and 3rd Sunday in each month until October for visits, tea, coffee, gifts etc. and trips to the top.
