    The view to Hilbre Island from Hoylake

    Hoylake is really a residential town but I guess one of its main attractions must be the beach. Not a family fun beach - more of a walking the dog beach or somewhere simply to walk for pleasure or relaxation. I do not think there are ever many people on the beach but for some strange reason I have only ever been to Hoylake over a 25 year period in the winter. There are some wonderful vistas here - the sea is a long way out and there are wind turbines out at sea generating power that you can watch.
    The view to Hilbre Island is stunning at sunset and I intend to explore more of this coast line on future visits.

    Cynthia Lennons house?

    I am a big Beatles fan and fan of 60s music in general and have just bought Cynthia Lennons book which is simply called John. For those under 50 John Lennon was a Beatle and he married Hoylake girl Cynthia in 1962. Now an internet site says Cynthia lived at 18 Trinity Road but in the book she describes her house as a semi detached in Hoylake. So I asked the hotel staff where we were staying where Trinity Road was and when they asked me why I wanted to go I told them - not one of them knew who Cynthia Lennon was and I felt very old! So I went to 18 Trinity Road and found number 18 which is a terraced house. So did Cynthia live here or not - if you know please let me know? This is an addition in a way to other VTrs who have put Beatles locations on Liverpool pages.

    Hoylake lighthouse again

    A Hoylake home

    The old lower light was constructed out of timber, was eight metres high and may have been designed to be movable. It was later rebuilt in brick in 1833, again in 1865 and formed part of the foundations of the old "Winter Gardens" cinema (now demolished) next to the Lifeboat Station.

    The Upper Light was also rebuilt in 1866 and is still in existence; forming part of a private dwelling house in Valentia Road, Hoylake.

    Hoylake lighthouse

    The Wirral coastline was once protected by seven lighthouses, today only 5 remain situated at Hoylake, Moreton, Bidston, New Brighton and Whitby - none unfortunately are operational but are a delight to admire the architectural styles. The other two were second light houses at Hoylake and Leasowe. This is a pic of the Hoylake lighthouse

    Hoylake lighthouse

    ...tucked away in a road, almost submerged by foliage, you could almost miss this historic building.
