West Pier, Brighton (detail)
West Pier, Brighton (detail)
Cut off from the mainland and ruined. Designed by Eugenius Birch and opened in 1866, the West Pier closed in 1975 and has been decaying slowly ever since. There were initially projects to reopen it but collapses in 2002 and fires in 2003 left it beyond repair, in the view of English Heritage; subsequently, some controlled demolition has further reduced the remaining structure. The structure seen here has now gone [2019].
