Southport's Pictures

Southport Memorial
Southport Memorial (QTEK 9100)

Just a quick picture of one of the two symetrical World War I memorials in Southport. In the middle is a needle that I don't have a good picture of. Maybe if this weekend mirrors another weekend to come (in that I don't think I'll have time for any pictures let alone any) then you might see it, however we may go back and I might be able to get a better picture.

Closed Pleasureland
Closed Pleasureland (QTEK 9100)

This is a picture from between Xmas and New Year. I'm only putting this up because someone did a search for Pleasureland and found this site, so being a little late with everything as usual here's a pic of Southport's Pleasureland.

I must admit I am always attracted to closed or run down or abandoned places I don't know why, probably part of a "romantic" idea of being able to imagine the things that happened that you can gain from places like this only when they are closed and the hurly burly (or perhaps not since it closed) has disappeared.

Bridge Near Funland
Bridge Near Funland (Nisis DV5)

Still In Southport coming back to the car this is a view of the bridge we got into Southport of. The tram goes from the end of the Pier to land and then over this man-made lake via the bridge to Funland (the white building on the right). It's strange to think that the lake is a man-made because it's massive, so not only do they crate a massive lake but then create two pretty impressive bridges that wouldn't have been there if someone hadn't have placed a great lake there.

Southport Pier
Southport Pier (QTEK 9100)

Today's outing was to Southport. Like so many seaside towns they do seem a little sad in the winter and with the car park we stopped at being right next to the closed Pleasureland that didn't help the gloomy feel you get from some seaside towns. Of course when you trip around the rest of Southport it doesn't seem to have done it harm (Pleasureland's closure I mean) but then again it seems slightly more wealthy than Fleetwood or Morecambe for that matter which probably helps.

This picture is from the end of the Pier where a rather useless tram runs from to the start of the town and back. The building on the left is the café on the end of the pier. But it all seems an ultra-modern affair for a pier when you compare this to Llandudno or Blackpool.
