Another Place
Tuesday, March 10, 2009



Last weekend Barry and I visited 'Another Place', a series of 100 cast iron statues placed on the beach at Crosby by artist Antony Gormley. I remember hearing about the statues when they were first put there in 2004, and finally found myself close enough to Liverpool to enjoy a stroll along the beach with a difference. The statues are identical and are spaced along a 3km section of beach. They all stare out to sea - some of them almost completely buried by water at high tide. I found it really evocative to see all those mesmerized people fascinated by the magic of the sea.

On my way around the Welsh coast a few years back, I camped there one night - right by the Crosby CG station. I arrived at midnight and was bewildered when I woke up, to see these guys standing waistdeep in the sea.

The CG folk said that they get calls every day from concerned members of the public!
