The Piers

There are many structures built out into the sea around the British coastline including piers, jetties and breakwaters. For our challenge we have chosen to visit all but one of the remaining Victorian piers that were initially built for pleasure and promenading.

In Britain there are 58 pleasure piers remaining of which we are visiting 57 on the Pier Pressure Challenge. Number 58 is on the Isle of Man and has been closed to the public for a good number of years.

To help us plan our trip we have taken our pier information from www.piers.org.uk, the wonderful online resource of the National Piers Society. Additional information has also been gained from British Seaside Piers by Wills and Phillips published by English Heritage.
