Deal Pier
Deal Pier
The current pier is the third one in the town's history. The first, a wooden one, built in 1838, was designed by Sir John Rennie. Unfortunately it was destroyed in an 1857 gale and then replaced by an iron pier in 1864. This survived until the Second World War, when it was struck and severely damaged by a mined Dutch ship, the Nora, in January 1940. The present pier, designed by Sir W. Halcrow & Partners, was opened on 19 November 1957 by the Duke of Edinburgh. Constructed predominantly from concrete-clad steel, it is 1026 ft (311 m) in length. It is the last remaining fully intact leisure pier in Kent and is a Grade II listed building....but it is not a thing of beauty.
