The news this week in Brighton is that they have started work on removing parts of the West Pier. I first heard wrong and thought they were removing the whole thing. No, just the wrecked concert hall that is accessible at low tide. I wandered down there to take a few photos and the wrecked pier now looks quite sterile. It just looks a bit wrong. Funny how a wreck of a building is probabaly the most photographed thing in the town.
I don’t understand why the removal had to be done as the plans for the new phallic i360 lookout tower is further up the beach. I’m sure if the West Pier had been renamed the i-Pier it would have been renovated already.
Some CCTV footage of the pier burning down the first time:
