A Black and White Sunday

Hastings Pier – after the fire in 2010

Published by


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.

  1. 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

        1. 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!

        2. 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

        3. 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…
