Southport Pier

Pier Sunset - RevisedThe one feature of the Southport coast is its pier! Along the miles of beach and marram, this solitary structure dares to stretch out towards the ever receding tide. It is the second longest pier in Britain, and it needs to be as the tide goes out much further than even the pier can reach. But, of course, everything looks great in the right light. Pick a night with a wonderful sunset and watch the pier glow with colour.

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.
