As I recall it was just behind one of the doors at the front.

It's not been taxed or mot'd since 2008, might still be in the pier!

I'm pretty sure it is still stored in the shoreward building.

Watch removal of historic features of Colwyn Bay pier that has prompted fury from campaigners

Pressure groups claim elements of the nineteenth century attraction - which is listed - are being dumped in skips.

A 19th Century pier that was almost destroyed by fire has been voted Pier of the Year.
Hastings beat off Worthing in the competition judged by the National Piers Society (NPS), with Llandudno pier taking third place.

Food for thought........
It was closed for safety reasons in 2006 because it had fallen into disrepair, before fire tore through the structure four years later.
Work to redevelop it began after the council compulsorily purchased it from its owners in 2012.
The redevelopment took more than two years and saw the pier's former pavilion turned into a restaurant and bar.
The structure is now owned by the Hastings Pier Charity and 3,000 shareholders who bought into the project at £100 a share.

Sad to see the machinery slowly pulling the pier to bits:

Don't worry Dave, they are merely dismantling it, carefully for storage... looking after it for a short while only, until it is restored to its former glory.
The council said so, I read it, so it must be true!
