Weston-super-Mare‘s second pier is Birnbeck, a crumbling old thing which is looking well past its best. It’s certainly in the shadow of the revamped Grand Pier but has suffered several setbacks in various plans for it to be redeveloped and restored. Meanwhile the elements continue to batter it during every storm and bits are falling off regularly. It’s quite a sad sight now. Read more on the history of Weston-super-Mare Birnbeck Pier on the NPS website. Read more about my visit to the pier on 12th June.
