Southport: branded as puritanical due to pier closure times? 




A nice summer stroll around the Marine Lake....


Amazingly, the Lake was very quiet and we hardly saw any tourists at all. Not what one would expect for August in a tourist resort. 


Pure Pier Puritanism? 




Possibly the lack of tourist trade was partially due to the pier being closed at only 6.00pm. This is of little use to fun-loving holiday makers who wish to see the end of the pier later on in the day.


I noted several holiday makers that were disappointed to see such early pier closure. 

I can understand security motives but closure at 6.00pm is absurd and smacks of Southport being branded a town for  puritans only...

And to add to the fuddy-duddy reputation, from 2013 it will close at just 5.00pm....



So much for a classic resort catering for tourists. Just what is going on?
