We love Another Place, have been visiting it regularly since it was installed, even when we moved away from Merseyside. However, on my recent visit, not only was the promenade very deep in sand, making it difficult to walk on and impossible if you are disabled. It is also obvious that sandhills are being allowed to grow between the prom and the river, meaning that you can't see the statues from the prom at the Waterloo end, much less walk easily. All of this means that people in wheelchairs, families with pushchairs and bike riders are not being catered for on what should be an easy to access path.
Sefton Council still praise Lord Street in Southport, plus the Botanic Gardens in Churchtown in their tourist literature, while allowing them to be run down or maintained by volunteers from the public. Is this the future for Another Place too? A great walk spoiled today and concerns for the future.
