A hideous new building has appeared at the end of the pier, totally unsympathetic to the design of the other buildings and towering over the bar. It's apparently going to house some large grabber cranes eventually.

Looks like the River City Jazz Men have put it to good use.

Reminds me of the small stage near Faulke's Cave, in which the Scarlet Merrions played.

Disappointing to see Six Piers Ltd approach to a Listed Structure; the original 1883 cast iron lamp standards outside the Leisure Island arcade were hacksawed off some time ago - they were in perfect condition, so why do it?

There's quite a few alterations gone on over the years that take no consideration for the Pier's Listed status. I might document one or two more on here.

Another 'put your feet in fish' business is almost ready to open on the pier:

After receiving enquiries from local environmental health officers, officials at Britain's Health Protection Agency (HPA) said they were launching an investigation into possible infection risks associated with the exfoliation treatment after concerns it may spread infection.

The practice is banned in several American states and Canadian provinces as cosmetology regulators believe the practice is unsanitary, with the Wall Street Journal claiming that "cosmetology regulations generally mandate that tools need to be discarded or sanitized after each use.

But epidermis-eating fish are too expensive to throw away"  :laugh:

Very low tide this afternoon, the water was only about 3 foot deep even by the Landing Stage at the end of the Pier and you could see the seabed very clearly. You could also see the amount of rubbish that has been dumped in there over the years!

First pic shows the seabed under the Landing Stage covered in old pieces of timber.
Second pic shows the remains of am ornate railing panel that is lying on the seabed.
