A beautiful, crisp day at Crosby Beach

Places to visit within an hour's drive of Wigan: Antony Gormley's 'Another Place' at Crosby Beach

If you’re looking for a drive out this autumn, you can’t go far wrong with Crosby Beach, featuring Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ – 100 cast-iron life-size figures, stretching for 1.5 miles along the estuary.

We made the trip on a crisp September day to get our first look at the world-famous figures.

And impressive they are!

The tide was out but the sea was only a 10-minute stroll away and the skies were clear and blue overhead.

It’s well worth a trip and easy to get to by car in less than an hour.
