For those of you who love the Iron Men at Crosby Beach, tomorrow is your last chance to visit an exhibition marking the installation’s 10th anniversary. Regenerus – formerly South Sefton Development Trust – has been staging the Ten Years of Another Place event at Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre but it is set to finish tomorrow. The statues should have gone to New York in 2006 but the council allowed them to remain as a tourist attraction.

Regenerus – formerly South Sefton Development Trust – is staging the Ten Years of Another Place event at Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre on Monday. The exhibition, which runs until 1st November, is one of several events. The statues should have gone to New York in 2006 but the council allowed them to remain as a tourist attraction.

Today we would like to wish the Iron Men on Crosby beach a very happy birthday from us all here at Jammy Toast. The spectacular sculptures by Antony Gormley have long been our favourite place to go and chill during a break on a long, busy day. “Another Place”, as the collection is titled, consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the foreshore, stretching almost a kilometre out to sea. The Another Place figures – each one weighing 650 kilos – are made from casts of the artist’s own body standing on the beach, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in silent expectation.
