Actually you can. The blurred blob in the background is Fort Perch Rock, another great (and overphotographed) Wallasey landmark. The lighthouse is right behind it, & probably a little to the left out of frame.

Fort Perch Rock was built as part of the sea defences in 1826, & you can find a brief history of it here, for those that are interested.

Sorry about the link, but it seemed better than the wholesale plagiarising of the text (commonly known as "cut 'n' paste" Smile)

Owl telescopes? I have never seen one before.. like the colour. Good luck to the viewers, bad luck is that you put 20p in, the owl flys awayGrin
BTW, thank you for your helpful comments on my photos.

Extremely interesting, Dave; not just the photo (though the dof is right up my street) but the link and its connotations. Presumably the Mersey's relative proximity to Ireland was the reason a French invasion was feared in those parts, with the French being able to rely on Catholic support at the end of a difficult voyage for a sailing fleet rather than the narrow but well-defended English Channel. The military architecture of the day was rendered useless within sixty years.......

I do like to see easy to understand instructions like this Davey.
The things nowadays you should get an instruction book on how to read the instruction book !!
And I do not know how to cut and paste on a computer.
I only know how to cut my bread and spread the chicken paste on it.
And it was my mammy that showed me that one !!

Excellent captured. There is a desire to throw a coin and turn.

Thank you all.
I promise you, it is a telescope, not one of those dodgy old "what the butler saw" machines that used to appear at seaside resorts.
Or so I'm told. Not that I'm old enough to remember first-hand.
