The Old and the New, Southport Marine Lake

The Old and the New, Southport Marine Lake

 

Having taken a walk around the Marine Lake in Southport recently (and taken a few photographs) I was impressed by the refurbished Victorian shelters. I have to confess to quite liking the old colour, even when it was faded and peeling, but the new dark green colour scheme looks sophisticated and blends well with the gardens. Both these photos were taken recently – the right hand image is from the northern end of the lake that hasn’t yet been refurbished.

Vast swathes of marram grass, miles and miles of sand and an uninterrupted shoreline mark out the Southport coast. Peter Holloway has been photographing the Sefton coast from Southport in the north, to Formby in the south for many years.
