At low tide yesterday I went out to the waters edge to photograph the wreck, unfortunately there was a strong inshore wind, so the tide didn't go all the way out and it turned early.

I will be going out again today (21st Jun 2009) - weather permitting, setting of from Red Rocks at about 1615, the tide is supposed to turn at 1700. If anybody wants to join up, meet me on the micro-hilbre that is on the way to the wreck about 200yds off shore. Look for the camera in hand, probably two of use.

If anybody goes out on these sands - please check the tide information - the gullies fill very quickly and have fast flowing currents. There is also sinking sand in places which isn't normally a problem but you have to be on your alert.

The next lowest tide point is the 25th so probably will try to get out there again when we should get quite a bit closer.

DD a very low tide is your best bet not only you get near to wreck the Hoyle bank doesn't get covered by the tide if you get stuck play safe and give your self plenty of time..

LOL - Right, the tide yesterday didn't go out any further than the day before, I will put a pictures up later, as we were there we went along to Hilbre Island, Middle Eye and then back to Hoylake. It was raining with a medium inshore wind which didn't help the tide or photography.

Both the route along the Sealine to Hilbre Island and the route from middle eye to Hoylake can only be attempted at low tides and are not recommended at all - an additional hazard are numerous patches of sinking sand.

My next attempt will be on the 25th, setting off from Red Rocks at about 6:30 pm for low tide supposedly at about 7:15 (ideally the morning tide is lower and less wind but work gets in the way), I already have some interest, anyone wanting to come along then please PM me and I will swap phone numbers and details.

Even with lower tides I don't think I can get close enough to get a good picture with my camera equipment (X3 7 Megapixel Still, X30 1.3 Megapixel Video). However I will keep trying, if the wind isn't inshore it will get us nearer.

Here is a picture of what I am trying to photograph, just the boilers and something else sticking out ...

25th I will be okay to do ifyou want dd; and yeah Chewy, I was there with Scott, we got quite near, and the tide was still going out, but it got too cold as soon as the sun went down and neither of us had coats (we were only originally planning to go the red rocks for Sunset photo's lol).

We are meeting on Thursday at Red Rocks (bottom of Stanley Road, Hoylake) at 6:30 pm for anyone that wants to join.

You will get muddy (stinky, sticky muddy), as well as wet - there are pockets of sinking sand which usually sink 4 to 6 inches deep and underneath the top sand is this horrible black gunge.

I thought that as well, but no it is just a load of organisms having a field day - the result is similar to oil but the smell is awful!

As I said above, its unlikely that you can get far enough out to get a decent pic - but it is quite nice out there so far from the shore - just doing it for a bit of fun really ...... but one day the wind mught be offshore wink
