A Pier without Peer, The History of Hastings Pier by Steve Peak - Hardback Edition

£26.00
  • This fully illustrated coffee table book chronicles the dramatic history of Hastings Pier from its construction in 1872 to the present day. The book also features a history of St Leonards Pier.
  • Designed and built by Eugenius Birch, the pre-eminent pier engineer of the Victorian era, Hastings Pier first opened in August 1872, heralding a new era in the history of british piers.  It popularity was sustained for over a century until changing fashions prompted a long period of decline, culminating in its closure in 2008 and a major fire in 2010.  A Pier without Peer tells the story of this remarkable and much loved structure, from the drilling of the first pile in December 1869, to the 'official' re-opening of the gates, following a major restoration project, in 2016.
