Iron Men exhibition opens

An exhibition to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Another Place on Crosby Beach is being hosted at Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre.

The exhibition, which will run until November 1, tells the story of Sir Antony Gormley’s famous Iron Men from their arrival on the sand to their current status as adopted members of the local community.

It also includes many little known facts about the installation and is brought to life through the images of acclaimed Crosby-based photographer Ron Davies.

Representatives from Sefton Council attended the launch of the event along with Ron Davies and Cate Murphy of Regenerus, formerly known as South Sefton Development Trust, who organised the exhibition with the help of the Arts Council.

Cllr Ian Moncur, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “Since day one in Crosby the Iron Men have been incredibly popular, and we feel this exhibition is a great way for residents and visitors alike to celebrate these iconic sculptures.”

Other exhibition are also taking place in south Sefton about the Iron Men.

Ten Years of Another Place is open 9am-5pm daily.
