Low tide on the Mersehead Sands
Low tide on the Mersehead Sands, taken 5 years ago
There are hardly any features this far out on the Mersehead Sands. There is a small channel to the right and just beyond that is the sea at very low tide. In the distance is the line of the Barnourie Bank - - a notorious sandbank responsible for the wreck of many a ship in days gone by. Far across the Solway are the Cumbrian Fells.
