Another Place

Another Place is a piece of modern sculpture by Antony Gormley, on Crosby Beach in Merseyside.

Cast iron figures, which are replicas of the artist’s body, face the sea on a two mile stretch between Waterloo and Blundellsands. As the tides ebb and flow, the figures are revealed and submerged by the sea, to dramatic effect.

Another Place was first exhibited on the beach of Cuxhaven in Germany in 1997, then in Stavanger,  Norway and De Panne in Belgium. It was intended that it would stay in Crosby for a short while, before moving to New York, but it was announced in 2007 that the Iron Men would be a permanent fixture on the Mersey!
