Hyde Holidays: Day Trip to Southport

Whilst I am away on holiday, Rune from Visual Norway is minding the blog for me. I have scheduled some special posts for the period taking readers on day trips to the West.

Across the Ribble from the Fylde coast is Southport, geographically in Lancashire but politically now part of the Sefton borough of Merseyside.

Southport Pier is the UK's oldest surviving iron pier, opened in 1860. It underwent a £7 million refurbishment in 2002.

This was the little train that ran to and from the end of the pier in 2005.

By 2008 it had been replaced with this more modern version.

On a more recent visit earlier this year we spotted this on Lord Street.

Great! ;)

The car's a 1930s Chrysler, but I'm afraid I can't be any more specific.

The older versions had a bit more charm.
