In-Memoriam Weston-Super-Mare Pier

Weston-Super-Mare Pier was destroyed by fire today, 28th July 2008. This photograph was taken in June 2008 shortly after it re-opened from it's refurbishment.

 

There has been a pier on this site for around 90 years, it last burnt down in 1930 and took 3 years to rebuild. It is the 1930 section that has been completely destroyed, but it is too soon to say as yet how much can be saved.
