Marine madness on Bramble Bank
Marine madness on Bramble Bank
The low tide on September 17, 2012 was not quite as low as had been envisaged, and Bramble Bank never quite emerged from the sea. Not that it prevented the annual cricket jamboree from taking place.

It looks as though someone forgot to bring a set of stumps as the wicket (there is only one) is in fact an upturned bat rammed into the sand. More details here: Link
