We have wanted to see these Gormley figures for years but didn't want to make a special journey from the south. Finally, we found ourselves travelling from Morecambe to Yorkshire and we made the detour. Unfortunately we arrived at high tide, we could only see the heads and shoulders of some of the figures, and we couldn't walk amongst them. The car park is half a mile from the figures, and the day was wet and wild, so not the perfect detour.
Even so, it was very atmospheric, and we appreciated for the first time what a feat of engineering they are, to withstand the waves crashing into them twice a day, every day. Will we go back at low tide? We will if we can.
Our visit wasn't a five star visit, but how can I not give Gormley five stars?
