Weston-Super-Mare Pier burns down


Weston-Super-Mare's pier (seen in the previous post) burnt down at the weekend. A great shame because it was a lovely pier with the funniest Ghost Train and great dodgems.

It's a shame whenever any pier burns down (even Blackpool's would be a sad loss, Mark) - and I know what you mean, Pod, but dodgem electrics, deep-fat fryers and no sprinkler system might have something to do with it.

Anyways, this from the Guardian - http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2008/jul/29/heritage.architecture

I was returning to weston for the first time in 5 years and was there on the day and managed to capture a before and after shot.
