This particular lighthouse is small, and it might even seem boring. It's where it is located that's interesting.
This is the Hilbre Island Lighthouse/Beacon, now a solar-powered red light. It's been where it is since 1927.
So where is it?
It's on Hilbre Island, of course. Hilbre Island is one of three small islands in the estuary of the River Dee, which flows by Liverpool on the way to the sea. The neat thing about the island is that it's a popular place to walk to, during low tide. Because the sea makes it impossible to walk to when it's high tide. So plan your hike carefully.
