“Shell”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Shame it is just a shell - would have thought it would have been rebuilt by now. Not an eyesore but it would be fantastic to have a view of something great rather than just a shell.

“sad remains of a once beautiful pier”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

Great for photography at different times of day and year of the sad remains of a once beautiful pier...... plans for a contemporary vertical pier are shown nearby which will give amazing views if ever built.....

“Its Gone!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

All that's left of this Listed Pier is the twisted ironwork after a fire about 6 years ago. Once beautiful now sadly missed, the various plans to rebuild seem to lack the charm that the original. Some things are better as a treasured memory than being allowed to be reborn as Frankenstiens monster.
