Cleethorpes pier, Lincolnshire


Cleethorpes Pier, In the late 19th Century Cleethorpes in North East Lincolnshire was becoming a popular resort for those wanting to escape the large industrial towns of Yorkshire and Lancashire. The Cleethorpes Pier was officially opened on August Bank Holiday Monday 1873. The large difference between low and high tide meant the pier needed to be long, some 1,200 feet (370m) in length. The pier comprised a timber deck and pavilion (constructed in 1888), supported on iron piles.

During the second world war a section was removed to stop its use in any German invasion attempt.
