A new world record was set in Brean on Saturday (September 20th) when a group of sand artists created an impressive mile-long design.

Julian Richardson and three friends teamed up to produce the mammoth design pictured here, which stretched along the beach south of Brean Down.

“The design is our biggest yet and sets a new world record,” a delighted Julian confirmed to Burnham-On-Sea.com moments after completing it.

“The design represented a DNA ribbon with added discs to give it definition and it followed the high tide line.”

“It took us about five hours to conplete – we started at 10am and finished at 3pm just before the incoming tide reached it,” he said. “I’m delighted with the end result – it’s quite an achievement.”
