Wirral Beacon

An iconic viewing tower with panoramic views to Liverpool, the River Mersey, the Liverpool Bay, the Cheshire Plains and the Ship Canal  Marks Barfield, the designer of the London Eye and the i-360 in Brighton are developing ideas for a new beacon and 80m high viewing platform set in Wirral Waters.

This project is at concept stage but resonates with Wirrals past and the Tower Ballrooms at New Brighton developed in the early 1900’s. The Tower at New Brighton was higher than the Blackpool Tower.
