Birnbeck Pier

Pier View was restored a few years ago, but it looks like somebody has been trying to nick the roof.
The rest of the derelict Birnbeck Pier in Weston-super-Mare has been closed off since a storm hit it in 1990.
A company called Urban Splash, who take on renovation projects others would not touch, bought the pier in 2006 and have put up their proposals, for redeveloping the pier, in the window of the Pier View visitor centre.

The Pier is unique in that it connects the mainland with an island.
