Bootle Lighthouse And Fog Horn

Not sure which section of Ships Nostalgia would deal with this question.

Bootle Lighthouse on the Mersey was first built in 1877 to serve the Port of Liverpool and the fog siren was situated - on the north wall of Gladstone Dock in Liverpool.
The fog siren was called the Bootle Bull because the sound could be heard
for miles around, it was an eerie tone when it sounded!
There would be two deep sounds followed by silence for three or four second intervals.
I would be very grateful if anybody can confirm when the Bootle Bull Fog Siren was discontinued.
From memory I think it could have been in the seventies or eighties??
Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks /Regards
Keith

Hi Keith,

Good luck with your enquiry.

I think the thread is best placed in Places of Maritime Interest so I am moving it there. I will leave a redirection in place for a couple of days so you can find it.
