Well, well ! I thought this promenade wall plaque was buried under sand but as you can see it isn’t! I was out walking on the beach yesterday morning with our dog when I spotted this commemorative plaque in the prom wall. It’s actually easy to find as it’s just in the wall by the slipway of the old lifeboat station.
It confirms that the promenade wall was built between the years 1897 – 1898. Would that be the whole wall from Bennetts Lane in Meols to the Kings Gap I wonder? Considering the wall seems to constructed with sandstone block it’s lasting reasonably well. There has been some remedial work undertaken – recently concrete was pumped into holes drilled into the pavement.
How many years life has the wall got in it do you think?
