Remains of the Chain Pier

Remains of the wooden piling just breaking surface at today's low tide.  

They probably align with the second pier out from the shore as shown in the 1890 photo below.

The remains of the first pier will now be buried in the beach due to the substantial build-up of shingle over the last 100 years.

  1. These remains don't often surface. On summer days, when the sea is still and clear, if you look from Madeira Drive it's sometimes possible to see the sea weed covered remains of the further pier beneath the water.
