View from Erith Pier
View from Erith Pier
Erith Pier was built in the late 1950s as a deep water facility when the previous wooden piers at Erith had outlived their usefulness. In the early 1990s the complex was abandoned until Morrisons took over in 1999, building a supermarket and restoring the concrete pier as a public amenity. It is the longest pier on the River Thames in London and provides superb views of the river. This is the view from it looking past an older wooden landing stage to Erith Oil Works, which processes various seeds into vegetable oils, and other riverside industry.
