"Many thanks for everything last week at Leasowe, my thanks to all the team for the patience shown. It was for me a magic week" Leasowe Lighthouse volunteer
In 2007 the Museum of Liverpool Archaeology Department ran a community excavation at Leasowe Lighthouse on behalf of Wirral Borough Council. The excavation explored the history of this iconic building, and remains of associated structures were discovered. 332 people participated in the project, and hundreds more visited the site to see what had been discovered!
