In 1942 the rubble and debris from the bombing of Bootle was transported to the Sefton coast where it was used to bolster sea defences. It still remains there to this day, washed clean every day, re-shaped by the sea and slowly returning to nature.

I love how sharp the the wet sand feels, it really adds a lot of texture to the image!

I didn't know that about the rubble from the war even though I grew up in Crosby near the beach.
