The UK’s oldest brick-built lighthouse


If you would like to help with the running of the lighthouse and maintain it for future generations, please consider becoming one of the Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse. Your membership fee will go towards the many costs of keeping the lighthouse open to the public and if you would like to be more “hands on” we are always in need of more volunteers.  There is always fundraising to be done, but behind the scenes there is constant marketing and planning activity involving liaison with numerous bodies such as Wirral Council and specialists in restoration. The guides and café staff who look after visitors on Open Days are all Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse, as are those who give up their weekdays to show the numerous school groups around.

Volunteers helping out in the lighthouse café

We welcome new volunteers, but even if you can’t help as a volunteer please consider joining as a member for just £10 a year, for which you will receive occasional updates about the lighthouse.  If you would like a Committee Member to contact you regarding volunteering in any capacity, please tick the relevant box on the Membership Form.

Membership is just £10 per year for an individual and £35 for a school or organisation.
