Walton-on-the-Naze is a seaside town in north Essex. Originally there were two piers here, but the second (longer) one is the only one which survives. It was originally opened in 1871 but was extended in 1898 to its present length, 2600ft (793m). You can read more on the history of Walton Pier at the NPS website. Read more about my visit to the pier on 10th June.
