Thanks to those of you who alerted me to the problem of drifting sand down on North Parade again. The breezy conditions caused the dry, fine sand to be blown off Hoylake beach and onto North Parade. I’ve been informed that cars were getting stuck (for a short while) in the sand and drivers have been making diversions around the side roads and pavements to avoid getting stuck.
I took the above photo at around 5pm and as you can see a JCB was being used to scoop up the sand. It was either being dumped over the railings and back onto the beach or being dropped at the old Hoyle Road slipway next to the model boating lake.
It seems that the drifting sand is becoming more of a problem – I’ve mentioned it before of course. What will it be like come the autumn with the typically strong winds?
