Weston Pier : The Last Day



Spent the weekend in Weston and the news coming out of there makes me feel sad at what has happened.. was walking underneath the pier at 08:30 yesterday morning so seems weird that the main part of it has gone.

Here she is on the last day...

:giggle:

seriously though, I have never been but it still made me feel it was such a shame as it is part Britains seaside heritage.

Been going there every summer since I was a kid as it's so close to Bristol. Really sad watching her burn this morning and just after her refit :cry:

thats one amazing place to burn holes in ya pocket & in the time, has great views across the oceans,

will be surely missed by anyone who visited, i been going there for last 12 years :cry:

what else is there to do in weston now ???

Yeah you would, especially considering the fact that probably 90% of the Uks seaside piers have gone the same way

Southend one catches fire at least once a year... you would think with all that water around it they would be able to put it out quick!

Tide was way out. I really like Weston and was gutted this morning when i heard the news; when i put on the TV i realized how bad it was. My four year old boy wanted to go and help put out the fire :-( he loved it there. For me this was the main attraction in Weston, it will be strange to go and not be able to visit the pier. I hope that they will rebuild it but with the economy the way it is at he moment, i very doubt it.
