The story of the Iron Men on Crosby beach will be told at a unique event next month.   An organised walk will uncover some of the myths around the famous art installation as well as stories about how Antony Gormley’s Another Place came to Sefton.   Key figures who helped deliver the project will give first-hand accounts of their experiences.   These include Rod Yeoman, formerly of the South Sefton Partnership, Laurie Peake, of the Liverpool Biennial, and Alan Williams from Coastal Engineering UK Ltd.   Pre-booking is essential for the walk on Saturday, April 6, and numbers are strictly limited.   The event has been organised by the Sefton Coast Landscape Partnership Scheme which is externally funded mainly by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Schools, Families and Leisure, said: “We are very keen to ensure the story behind Another Place is told.   “This is a unique opportunity to speak to some of the people involved in the project and hear their memories of the challenges and considerations of the time.   “This is a chance for residents to meet these people and find out much more about this world famous public artwork.   “Pre-booking is essential as we are limited by the number of people who will be able to take part.”   For full details, and to book a place, call 0151-934 2964 or email [email protected]
