The work continues; by the time the structural work is finished there’ll be around 72,000 metres of new timber, 11 new structural piles and 500 deck beams and 350 lattice girders will have been replaced.

You can watch the changes happening live via the Pier webcam.

Adopt A Plank register

We have had a lot of enquiries about the Adopt a Plank scheme which closed in 2013.
