When you first walk along the marina and turn the corner to head towards the sea, you look out and see some very unusual people standing very, very still, all in the same pose, right along the beach. Some have even been brave enough to walk neck-deep in to the bitterly cold sea. How strange!
Of course, those of you familiar with Antony Gormley's Another Place will know that I'm talking about the exhibition of 100 cast iron sculptures, now a permanent feature on Crosby beach. They really are quite remarkable to see, some high up on the sand, others buried waist deep, and a handful even out to sea and only visible with the tide going out.
