Further to Alan Jones comment about the Lightship being washed up on the beach. I posted a reply under Tank Traps on the beach relating my memories of what this vessel really was. This is a picture of one of the Mersey sea lane markers, complete with light, washed up on Formby Beach. I believe it was one of these that was washed up in the early 60’s and not a full blown Lightship. Apparently the occurrence of them breaking their moorings has been frequent over the years. Does this picture awake anyone’s memories ?
