Old pier, Harrington
Old pier, Harrington
This old and eroded pier a short distance north of Harrington Harbour appears to have been constructed mainly from iron furnace slag. It carried a railway siding branching from the Harrington Harbour Branch which with its sidings occupied the land to the right of the photograph.
The England Coast Path follows the broad track.
England Coast Path (ECP)

The England Coast Path (ECP) will take advantage of new public rights of access to the coast, to form a 2,800 mile long public path right around England's coasts.

Parts of the path were already open in 2016, although the ECP will not be completed until 2020.

More information about the ECP is on the National Trails website: LinkExternal link
