Brighton Wheel
Brighton Wheel
Viewed from halfway down the Palace Pier and giving some idea of the context along the seafront.

After much wrangling Brighton finally gets a large ferris wheel on the seafront though not in the position they originally wanted, objections by the Grand and Metropole Hotels put paid to the original idea of putting it next to the West Pier. Consequently, it has been shifted eastwards to Dalton's Bastion near to the Palace Pier. The wheel is 50m high and contains 26 gondolas and construction began on the 22 September with much of the actual wheel being erected this week. the gondolas were added today. The wheel will be here for six months and open all over winter though how it fares when the autumn gales really start to blow I'm not sure.
