The tide is receding leaving the more of the groyne exposed. In the background is Boscombe Pier.

The original Boscombe Pier was built in 1888 by a private company, but was sold to the Bournemouth Corporation in 1903. The pier head was added in 1926. It was requisitioned in 1940 and as a precaution against use by invading forces, a section was demolished. By the mid 1950s it was a rusting skeleton. The new pier was opened on 6 June 1962. A council survey in 2003 showed overwhelming support for the pierís regeneration, and Grade II listing ensured that its character was kept intact.
