    • THE MARSHSIDE CALAMITY
      http://www.northmeols.org.uk/marshside/index.htm
      Many fishermen lost their lives on the treacherous shore, the most notable occurrence happened on the 26th January 1869 when seven local men were lost on the shore in heavy fog. All perished. A fund was set up to help the families, ‘The Marshside Calamity Fund’ and a fog bell was erected on the sea bank with a wooden hut for the bell ringer. Two years later it was destroyed in a gale. Later the present brick Fog Bell building was built and it also housed a weather or ‘anemometer’ station which operated until 1959.

      BLAND: ANNALS OF SOUTHPORT
      1869 January 26th. Terrible calamity at Marshside.
      Seven fishermen, returning from " putting " for shrimps, got
      lost in a dense fog, and were drowned. The Marshside Fog
      Bell was erected as a memorial, and as a preventative of a
      similar calamity. An inscription on the Bellhouse read:
      " MARSHSIDE FOG BELL : This Bell was erected in May,
      1869, to prevent a similar calamity to that which happened on
      the 26th January, 1869, when seven men, viz., Peter Aughton,
      Robert Wright, John Wright, John Rimmer, Peter Wright,
      William Hesketh, and Peter Wright were drowned by the
      rising tide on the adjacent sandbanks, in a dense fog, being
      unable to discover, until too late, the direction of home." A
      handsome subscription was raised for the relief of the widows
      and orphans, which was invested in such manner as to expire,
      capital and interest, in twenty years. John Ashworth, author
      of " Strange Tales," founded one of his most interesting
      stories on this event.
