Rossall Point, Marine Hall Gardens & The Mythic Coast
NAME : Rossall Point, Marine Hall Gardens, The Mythic Coast DATE : 2012 - CLIENT : Wyre Council - LOCATION : Cleveleys & Fleetwood PARTNERS : BCA Landscape, Studio Three Architects (now EWA), Chris Brammall Ltd, John Merrill.
The Mythic Coast was conceived by Broadbent and forms part of a cultural vision and strategy document for the Wyre Coastline and is linked to the ongoing sea defence works we completed in Cleveleys.
This vision document formed the basis of a successful Sea Change funding application, which recognised schemes that have the potential to regenerate seaside towns through cultural and environmental enhancements. The Sea Change grant funded three distinct projects, an observation tower at Rossall Point, the regeneration of Marine Hall Gardens, Fleetwood and the Mythic Coast Art project.
The aim of the art project has been to develop a narrative for the seafront from Cleveleys to Fleetwood, that would draw people along the coastline and connect communities. This narrative forms the foundation for all cultural and art interventions on the seafront.
