Another photo of the Telegraph Inn, taken in 2003.
Wallasey's higest Pub gets its name from the fact that it was one of a chain of stations, within sight of each other, that could signal a ships arrival, back to the merchants in Liverpool.
Now it is perhaps better know for its real ales and mini beer festivals.

It was built in 1842 and is therefore 170 years old this year!

The debate on this one has been going on now for many years, but to the best of my knowledge no-one has ever come up with any evidence to show that The Telegraph was part of the chain of stations of the Holyhead to Liverpool Telegraph. The route of the Telegraph reached Wirral at Hilbre, and from there the signals passed direct to Liverpool via Bidston Hill; there was no need for any detour via Wallasey. Perhaps one explanation is that the Telegraph Pub had a Newsroom, which would have been where local shipowners and merchants would have met to peruse the latest newspapers, and that the telegraph relay station at Bidston could be clearly seen from the Pub which would have enabled them to get even more up-to-date News concerning the arrival of their vessels.
