Pier Pressure

Sadly, Swanage Pier was damaged in last week's rough weather, as reported on the local news sites:
Although a temporary brace has been put in place to prevent further damage, the Pier remains closed for the immediate time being.

With Easter just around the corner, this is a setback for all those who use the Pier - including anglers, divers, pleasure boaters, strollers and incoming excursions.

The Pier, originally built in 1860 won the Pier of the Year award in 2012, and I'm sure the Swanage PierTrust would welcome any donations towards its upkeep and ongoing repairs in a bid to regain the coveted title.
