Piers By County
Herne Bay Pier
Herne Bay has had three piers in total, the first was opened in 1832, but the current one dates from 1899. It was badly damaged by a storm in 1978 and the pierhead is now a crumbling wreck way out to sea, with only a short section at the shore end remaining open to the public. Read more on the history of Herne Bay Pier on the NPS website. Read more about my visit to the pier on 2nd July.
