NOTES: The original pier dates from 1889, but was remodelled in 1927-1928 and subsequently repaired after war damage. In 1958-1960 this neck entrance was built, demonstrating a boomerang-shaped plan, with two kiosks either side of the main entrance, toilets behind and shelters at either end, seen here with sweeping canopies. In 2010 the pier was refurbished and restored by Trinity Architecture.
