ABC Wednesday - U is for Under the Pier
Walk to the end of the South Pier at Blackpool and look down. This is what you see. Here the boardwalk ends and only a metal mesh supports you. The gap is big enough for the end of my walking stick to poke through. One has to be quite careful, especially when the cold wind is blowing, which it quite frequently does with a vengeance.
Below is a longer shot that shows a larger area.
Note the lifebouy attached to the side of the "Crazy Mouse".
The Crazy Mouse is a roller-coaster ride. See my photograph on the Geograph website.
Just in case anyone is tempted please heed the warning sign:
More U posts can be seen on the ABC Wednesday Anthology blog.
Others can be found via the ABC Wednesday with Mister Linky which carries a registry of participants.
