A Black and White Sunday
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling. View all posts by Heyjude

Oh, you saw the ruin….
I love British piers, and it’s always a shame when they are damaged. They look forlorn, like the bones of a whale, or dinosaur.
Best wishes, Pete. x
They do rather. I wonder if this has been fixed up?
I last went to Hastings in 2007, I think. 🙂
The 280m (919ft) long pier was restored and reopened to the public in April 2016. In 2017 it won the RIBA Stirling Prize for architecture. Now it is apparently for sale!
I could live on it! 🙂 Just need a lottery win now, and a big sign that says “PRIVATE: KEEP OUT”.
I’d visit you. If invited, of course 😀
If I had a whole pier, you could stay in a converted shop! 🙂 I would probably be living in the remodelled amusement arcade. It would be great to convert all the small shops and concessions into little studios for guests. x
Now that would be fun. Although unfortunately they want the pier to still be accessible to the public so it might be a bit crowded…
In that case, it’s off my shopping list! 🙂
A sad sight, the sadness enhanced by the monochrome
Oh, that’s a bit sad. Has it been rebuilt?
It looks desperately fragile, so glad it’s been rebuilt.
But the company has gone bust in the process. You got a few million hanging around?
I did but I used it to buy a circus 🙂
Haha… and why not!
