(P Munroe engineer). Long pier in the centre of Weston Bay, opposite the end of
Regent Street. Completed 1904. Ironwork structure extending for ΒΌ mile with a large
platform and landing-stage at sea end. The pier deck rises gradually from the shore
end, which has been considerably altered. The main length of the pier is of openwork

tubular with capitals and cross-braces. The whole length of the deck has a con-
tinuous canopy to centre with metal columns and traceried braces. Platform at sea end

girders. Very large pavilion (193O's), now occupies the deck of platform. Landing
stage projects beyond the pavilion.
