Yarmouth Pier, Isle of Wight
|Design:||Denham & Jenvey|
|Restoration:||1927, 1983-86, 1993/4, 2007|
In 1874, Yarmouth Corporation were given permission to construct a pier. The Grade II listed pier is set direct to magnetic North, as required by the Crown on granting the site. Only three weeks after it had opened in 1876, the steamer Prince Leopold caused extensive damage to it, smashing through 50 metres of pier deck. 552 deck planks record the names of those who helped fund the pier’s restoration. A regular ferry service runs between Yarmouth and Lymington on mainland Britain.
