Pony rides by the Pier

Pony rides were a pier-side attraction in Edwardian times. By now it was fashionable to travel by train to the coast and spend the day enjoying the sea air and the entertainments on offer.

The original pier was 910 feet long (277m) and was supported by 200 cast iron columns. At the entrance was a wide gap to allow the pounding waves of a storm to hit the sea wall and come harmlessly through the opening, thus preventing damage to the deck.
