TM5491 :: Claremont Pier

Taken 9 years ago by Ashley Dace near Lowestoft, Suffolk, England

Claremont Pier by Ashley Dace
Claremont Pier

The ruined pier has only the beach portion in use with a restaurant and amusements. It was built in 1903, taking in steamers from London Bridge. However the Army took over the pier in WW2 and they held it until 1948. By then the steamers wouldn't return and although repairs were carried out the sea section has succumbed to time. The restored pier at Southwold has been a good economic stimulus in the area, having been restored a few years ago. TM5176 : PS Waverley at Southwold Pier TM5176 : P.S Waverley at Southwold Pier
