Pity the rebuild is not finished

Always a great pier, just a pity that the fire caused so much damage and the repair is taking so long.

Mixed views thus far and I fear this is not going to be one for traditionalists. New owners whilst clearly investing in renovations and development are reportedly no loner going to allow fishing and not renewing a number of other licenses. I was unable to discover what the mid to long term plans are but they do not seem to... More

The pier was rather shabby, the only nice thing on the pier was the glass shop oh and the tea room the had a beautiful chandelier.

Saturday night we decide to walk on the pier nothing was open and there is nothing on the pier of interest just somewhere to have a drink which was so quiet and a chippy which had decent food. Needs some money injected into it

The land end of the pier has been reconstructed but it seems that they have not replaced many of the kiosks. That said, it was great for a bracing January walk in the sleet along the pier.

I have known the pier since childhood and always loved visiting it. The fire was a real tragedy and I hope it will be restored to its former glory and that the end of the pier theatre will be regenerated. It is good to see fishermen and families using the pier.

Since the fire and coming into new ownership, the pier has started to regain its appearance. A great pier with exceptional views of the town and good places to eat and drink.

As someone who worked on the renovation of the pier after the fire, I'm amazed and stupified by the amount of congratulatory posts saying well done to the Council for renovating the pier! The pier is (and always will be) privately owned and all renovation and reconstruction was carried out by a specialist private company. Those guys in the orange... More
