Cockelling November 2010

The New Brighton (UK) cockel beds have been closed for many years. But when opened up in November 2010 a small army of workers appeared. Predominately Welsh and Polish these men worked long after dark, filling large sacks of cockels by sifting and washing the sand. These sacks would then be collected by speeding mini-tractors.
