Antony Gormley's Another Place

Certificate of Excellence

Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Time your visit to this outdoor attraction during low tide. Crosby Beach to the north of the city hosts 100 iron figures cast from the artists' own bodies then erected over a three-kilometer area. Anthony Gormley's simple yet remarkable installation is especially rewarding at sunset.

Caught the train from Southport to Hall Road. Took a short walk to the beach, 15 minuets, then spent an hour photographing several of the cast iron men that stand on the sand. Quite by chance we managed to get there in time for the tide to turn and watched fascinated as the rising water submerged them. Took lots of photos.

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.

We walked on Crosby beach several times over Christmas - lovely beach and Another Place really added to the experience. We easily found free parking so no need to pay high parking charges at the official brown-signed car park.

This is a great day out. The beach here is lovely all the way up to past Southport, but this is one of the many places were you can just stop and stare at the iron men, the passing ships, the passing people or whatever. If it's good weather it's a good place for a level walk for as far as you want and if it's poor weather you can sit in the car and see it all.

Walk along Crosby sands at low tide and contemplate the existence of 100 iron men. An experience not to be missed - sculptures staring steadfastly out to sea, over shifting sands became a courageous civic statement (£194,000!) when a permanent location was controversial for Another Place (naked figures - risk to water sports - the danger of fast rising tides...). Angel of the North, eat your heart out!
