|Design:||Douglass and Arnott|
|Storm damage:||1949, 1953, 1976, 1978, 1990|

One of the first piers to be built in the twentieth century, Cromer Pier has experienced substantial storm damage over the years and has needed much restoration. On 14th November 1993, a 100 ton rig crashed into the pier, isolating the theatre and the lifeboat station, which has been stationed at the end of the pier since 1923. Unusual for modern piers, there is a complete absence of any amusement machines. A £1.2 million repair scheme began in 2012 to refurbish the metal skeleton and wooden decking.
