From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (29 February 2024):
Fort Perch Rock is a former defence installation situated at the mouth of Liverpool Bay in New Brighton. Built in the 1820s to defend the Port of Liverpool, its function has changed from defensive, to tourist attraction and museum.

The fort features a museum with displays including military aviation, maritime history,
and the Fort Perch Rock Marine Radio Museum used to exhibit marine wireless communications devices.
The museum is currently being refurbished and will reopen in Spring 2023.

Perch Rock Marine Radio Museum

The Museum project was mainly instigated by Stan McNally, with the help of other ex Merchant Navy Radio Officers’ Mike Goulbourne and John Hudson, and members of the LMRES [Liverpool Marine Radio and Electronics Society] to whom we must owe our gratitude for saving the three full ships radio room equipments.
The equipments available for public display are Marconi and Kelvin Hughes types. It is well worth a visit if you are in the area and is real trip down memory lane for Radio Officers.
