Fleetwood Pier, also known as the Victoria Pier, was located in Fleetwood, Lancashire. At 150 metres in length, it was one of the shortest piers in the country. It was built in 1910 at the end of the golden age of pier building, and other than a 1957 pier built in Deal it was the last to be built in Britain. It was destroyed by fire and demolished in 2008.
