As It Used To Be

The pier as it used to be at Saltburn, I should be able to remember it like this but I guess the memory is going because I cannot recall it; but doesn’t it look lovely?  Now I have been reading about the pier and at one time it was 1.500 feet long and the seaward end we see here was removed by a storm on October 29th 1974. Nigel Anderson recalls: “The buildings at the end of the pier were a horseshoe shape with covered seating both sides, inside and out and all round!!! I have many memories of the elderly sitting there asleep or listening g to the waves! Also should have mentioned that in the summer on Sundays a brass band often played in the centre at the end!

    What was the nature of the buildings at the end of the pier? They don’t look like amusements.
