Bangor Garth Pier (Gwynedd)
Bangor Garth has a pier, which is the second longest in Walesis 1,500 feet (or 472 metres). Constructed largely in steel, with cast iron columns and screw piles, Bangor Pier comprised of a wooden deck punctuated with a series of elegant polygonal kiosks with steeply pitched roofs, ornamental lamps and handrails, and a pontoon landing stage at the head. A 3ft (90cm) gauge railway for baggage handling was also included in the design, but was removed in 1914.
The pier was almost demolished in 1974 due to the poor condition but it survived and gained a Grade 2 listed status. With assistance from the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Welsh Office and the Manpower Services Commission, the fully restored Bangor Pier was reopened by the Marquis of Anglesey on 7th May 1988.
