Artist's Description

This is actually a sewage pumping station at New Brighton, Wirral, UK. Part of it is supported on these huge concrete pillars which go down deep into the sand on the beach below. On this particular day the tide was low, and i managed to capture the low sun creating these fantastic shadows onto the water and the concrete wall.

It is built on the site of the old New Brighton pier which was demolished in 1963.
In its heyday New Brighton was a huge tourist attraction, with thousands of holiday makers travelling from all over the northwest and arriving by ferry at the pier.
Just a couple of hundred yards from the pier was the famous New Brighton Tower, the tallest in the country. It was even taller than Blackpool tower, but sadly, was demolished in 1921.
