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!



no cars at all?  :)

I didn't go down onto the Landing Stage as the gate was closed.  :(

Ah yes, 16.09. Might pop down if I'm in the area. You will almost be able to walk out as far as the end of the pier on the beach.

You may have been able to spot original 1883 cast iron lamp standards that were hack-sawed off.

Probably been sold for scrap, given Iron and Metal prices right now.

I wonder if there's any remnants of the original pier down there?

There are clear remnants of the original Pier, mostly to the left (near the Happy Valley gates) ... underneath,  and the original wooden footings can still be seen to both sides.
Dave posted pictures of them on here not long ago.
