Bangor Garth Pier, North Wales
|Design:||John James Webster|
|Construction:||Cast iron screw piles concreted into well holes supporting steel lattice girders; timber joints; planked decking|
After an 1893 Parliamentary Bill, work on the pier began and it was opened by Lord Penrhyn at a cost of £17,000. In 1914, a cargo steamer collided with it and repairs were carried out by the Royal Engineers. The second-longest pier in Wales, stretching two-thirds of the way across the Menai Strait, it is now Grade II* listed, though the structure requires £2 million for essential maintenance work. There is an honesty box at the throat requesting that each walker contribute 25p to its upkeep.
