Bike Touring Highlight
Towering above Whitby Locks in Ellesmere Port, Ellesmere Port Lighthouse once guided boats into the Shropshire Union Railway and Canal from the River Mersey. An engineer called Mr Jebb designed the lighthouse in 1874. Built in red brick, the lighthouse's octagonal tower is almost 11 meters (36 feet) high. The light could be seen from 19 miles (30km) away.
Today, the lighthouse is a listed building and iconic site on the horizon.
