Brighton Pier (Images from Richard T Riding Collection)

The seaside pier is a British invention. Indeed, it is almost exclusively an English invention. Six piers were built on the English coast before the first Welsh pier (at Beaumaris) opened. The few Scottish piers that exist came rather later. The idea subsequently spread to both France and the USA.
