The Grade II listed Point of Ayr Lighthouse is located in Talacre, North Wales. Literally drenched in history this light house has many stories to tell.
Intended to watch over the fierce Irish sea the lighthouse was built in 1776 to guide vessels into the Dee and Mersey Estuary and was operational for over 100 years.
Decommissioned in 1883 the history of the light house does not end there. It was later used as a radio control tower during ww2 to assist aircraft during target practice.
It is also said that one keeper decided not to leave as a ghostly figure has been seen many a time patrolling the rusty platform before dissapearing into the night.
After many years of neglect the lighthouse was painted in hopes of giving a new lease of life but the peeling paint and rusty aura suggest otherwise.
If you are ever in the area I would definitely recommend checking out the light house as it's an absolute haven for landscape photographers! Thanks for reading! :)
