A formidable defence
jul. de 2021 • Amigos
Fort Perch Rock is a wonderful landmark that you will find if you visit New Brighton, a wonderful fort that was constructed between 1825 - 1829 and was the first line of defence from invasion through Liverpool Bay and River Mersey.
It's a Grade II listed structure that at the height of its powers had 18 guns around the fort, today its a tourist attraction and very cool ,at the moment closed ,Fort Perch Rock is very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities and is easy to locate along Promenade and is a must see site in New Brighton.

Great lighthouse

The rock comprises both the old Fort and a most impressive lighthouse at the mouth of the river and Liverpool Bay.

Fort Perch Rock is a fantastic looking structure along New Brighton Promenade, constructed between 1825 - 1829 and once bristling with 18 heavy guns ,its placement was to safeguard the entrance to the River Mersey.
This is one of New Brighton's most prominent and most recognisable landmarks,its location on the beach is superb,very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities and is most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate along New Brighton Promenade.

One of New Brighton's most famous landmark structures is Fort Perch Rock ,familiar to all the residents of the New Brighton area and if your walking along New Brighton promenade hard to miss really.
Constructed between 1825 - 1829 this fort guarded the stretch of water leading to the important and expanding Port Of Liverpool, once bristling with 18 guns it gained the nickname " Gibraltar On The Mersey ".
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a cold and blustery Wednesday afternoon, waves were extremely choppy, made for some great photographic opportunities, couldn't gain access to the fort,not sure if you can nowadays but I was content to just admire this wonderful historic and historically important fort ,take a few photos before heading to the warmth of The Seahorse Pub to enjoy a few cold beers .
Well worth checking out if your planning a trip to New Brighton.

The old fort looked derelict and shabby,unfortunately. There was a beaten up, probably stolen old Ford fiesta dumped at the drawbridge entrance adding to the gloomy appearance.

Luckily, visiting fort perch rock wasn't the reason for our visit to the area, as were out for a wander in New Brighton, with the dog.

It's a real shame that an apparent water leak led to a large repair bill and ultimately led to the first decline, as this would have been an interesting and unusual place to visit. I hope someone can help to support the repair of the fort before it is lost forever.

Durch das stetig wechselnde Lic hat, die Sonne die durch die Wolken bricht und die manchmal heftige Brandung ergeben sich immer neue Fotomotive.

Not been here since I was a kid, nice to see it so well kept. It wasn’t the best day weather wise but it was nice and clear so great views of the Mersey. Quite nostalgic reminded me of many happy childhood days visiting here.

came in motorhome to visit New Brighton and stayed on promenade by Fort Perch Rock.
Disappointed to find it closed and going by the sign on door it will be closed until some time in the future.The original leaseholder had cleared away all his belongings according to the council notice on the Fort door,and they await someone new to take over the attraction. So apart from that the scenery around was terrific,being able to see across to Liverpool and the docks which were loading containers as we watched.And the sandy beach even though it was facing the Mersey river was spotless enjoyed by many with Lifeguards present.We will return for sure!!

It was closed when we went, apparently it’s been closed for a while. I went a few years ago and found it interesting... no explanation given as to why it was closed.

For reasons unknown TripAdvisor wont mark this place as CLOSED even though I have told them numerous times. Is still great to look at from the outside but access is not available
