  1. hehehe you said “‘as been destroyed by fire!” in that funny english accent way, hehehe.

    Oh and I’m sure it was a nice pier. Sad to hear.. 🙁

    Thanks for pointing that out, I’ve corrected my spelling now!

    The sad thing is that the pier has only recently been brought by new owners and they have recently refurbished the pier.
    They had also just opened a brand new state of the art indoor go-kart track.

    I was at the pier on a work outing at the start of June.
    It’s such a shame to see it go up like that!
