Real “Tardis” Police Boxes in Glasgow, Scotland

Have you ever wondered what the deal is with Doctor Who’s Tardis? What is a Police Box anyway?

Police boxes were real and graced the streets of Britain from 1923 when the first one was built in Sunderland. They reached the streets of London from 1928. The purpose of their construction was so that Police officers could keep in touch with headquarters. Some were also for use by members of the public for calling the Police in the event of an emergency. While almost all of the original boxes are now gone, less than ten remain nationwide with most of them (like this one) on the streets of Glasgow, Scotland.

Just quick pre-sleep selfie :p

The Iron Men of Crosby Beach, Merseyside

We found ourselves at Crosby Beach in Merseyside, England on a particularly blustery day. We staggered our way up the steep sand dunes that separated the beach from the neighbouring parkland with sand blowing directly at us, scratching our cheeks and stinging our eyes. It was almost as if the beach didn’t want us to see the unique art installation that it housed.

At first, it’s difficult to find them. The tide was out upon our visit, so the beach was vast and the sand in our eyes only hampered us further. As we braved the sandy onslaught though, their presence became more apparent. 100 iron men, spaced liberally across a 3.2km (2 mile) stretch of the beach, each identical and emotionless, each facing out to sea.

The statues, part of an installation called ‘Another Place' are cast replicas from the artist himself, Anthony Gormley. Whilst the presence of the statues have caused some local controversy, we were intrigued and somewhat moved by their motionless stoicism.
