Save me

These vertical poles mark the safe route across the tidal sands and mud of the Pilgrims Way, the ancient crossing way from the English mainland to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne on the Northumbrian coast of North East England. Should you get caught out by the rising tide then the construction in the foreground is the emergency refuge where you can wait until the tides recede again.
