      Went with our dog on a very blustery afternoon for a walk. Sand was blowing but didn't distract from a nice afternoon with great views over to New Brighton and the Welsh mountains Read full review

      This would be just a boring expanse of sand with an industrial backdrop if it weren't for the statues. Absolutely loved them, and FREE PARKING!!! Massive kudos to Sefton council for this 👏👏👏👏👏 Read full review
