Artist's description:

Not only do I love my walks for the fresh air and being surrounded by nature but I also love the history of many of the places I walk. Sometimes my walks take me a little further along the coast. The inspiration for this painting comes from my time spent in New Brighton.
Perch Rock lighthouse is no longer a working lighthouse but still stands on the rocks at New Brighton. Its name came from the word perch used to describe a timber tripod supporting a lantern which was how the lighthouse first began in 1683. It was built to guide ships past the rocks safely.
In 1827 Liverpool became a busy and thriving port and it was decided that the present day lighthouse needed to be built. It was built as a freestanding white tower and at the top sits a red iron lantern. It is said that the design was based upon an oak tree trunk. It stands at 95ft tall. From 1830 when the lighthouse was first lit it remained a working lighthouse until 1973 when technology meant Perch Rock was no longer needed.
This artwork has been created on a quality box canvas and forms part of a series of paintings I have been working on inspired by this beautiful lighthouse. The painting has white painted sides so no need for framing and has been fitted with chord so is ready to hang. It has been signed on the side.
