Old railway buffers at the end of Erith Pier
Old railway buffers at the end of 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 view at the far end shows where the railway buffers were located. It is taken from where the engine turntable was located - see Link
