Historic Structures. Protecting our Piers

Seaside piers are a familiar sight in many of the major coastal holiday resorts of England, Wales and the Isle of Man. At the turn of the century there were about 100 piers around the coast. By the year 2000 this figure is likely to have been halved. It is crucial that the remaining structures survive to enliven the resorts they serve and as a monument to the entrepreneurs and engineers of earlier times. David Bateman
