Douglas Pier, Isle of Man (Lost Pier)
|Construction:||Wrought and cast iron|
The Douglas pier was closed in 1891 and acquired by the council who offered it for scrap as they wanted to widen the promenade at the foot of Broadway. It had originally been thought that Douglas Pier was sold to a group of North Wales businessmen in 1895, dismantled and re-erected at Rhos-on-Sea. However, this has since been disproved. A number of resorts (including Penarth and Abergele) considered purchasing it to re-erect at their resorts but this did not happen and it was dismantled.
