100 Iron Man Statues On Crosby Beach

There are indeed 100 iron man statues facing the sea located along a 2 mile stretch of Crosby beach, England.

When we heard of this we had to go and check for ourselves.

The 100 Iron man statues or ‘Another Place’ is the correct title for the exhibition are a form of art sculpted by Sir Antony Gormley. All the sculptures face towards the sea and are approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall.

The 100 Iron man statues are very well-traveled, There 1st Exhibition in Germany then they went on to Norway and even had a short stay in Belgium. As of 2007 they have a permanent residence of crossly beach just north of Liverpool.

The iron statues are scattered across the beach.The ones closer to the sea have a lot more shells/coruscations on them from repeated crashing by the waves. When the tide rises most of the statues are completely submerged with only a few of them with their heads bobbing out of the water.

I just hope the coast guards can distinguish between the head of a statue and that of a real human.

It was a great day apart from my shoes being ruined. A wondrous sight to see for anybody who is close to Liverpool for a few days. Just beware of the sinking sand.
