Wordless Wednesday: Ruins of West Pier, Brighton [2017]

DSC_1762.jpg


My sister Sara and I, took a trip down to Brighton for 2 days. We used to live in East Sussex and hadn't seen the city of Brighton for 14 years! This is the ruins of the West Pier which was opened in 1866, and it closed to the public in 1975 ( which was the year I was born in the town itself) due to safety reasons. Sold to a trust in 1983, it was to be 10 years later in March of 2003 that the pier suffered an arson attack, and the picture above is all that's left of this iconic structure now marked by buoys. The Victorian entrance is still standing with a restaurant and a observatory suspended on a pole to view the seafront, which is owned by British Airways.
