Blundellsands Beach - Merseyside

This wide open expanse of beach is located just north of Crosby, one of Mersyside's most affluent areas. Blundellsands beach is backed partly by a promenade and then dunes to the north.



What Blundellsands is probably best known for though are the life-size cast iron sculptures of several men set just beyond the tide line. These are a permanent art installation by Antony Gormley entitled Another Place. There is no denying the power of these figures as they become partly submerged with the tide, particularly with the setting sun behind.
