A Peer at the End of the Pier in Ramsgate

Not that pier silly it was demolished 1930 having been damaged by a mine in 1919 although I do publish a book about it, see http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/id122.htm
This one, these ones strictly called harbour arms, the picture taken this morning – sorry it’s a bit murky, it was like that this morning – as you can see the dredging needs doing.
There were also quite a few people in high vis jackets peering at the pier this morning, I had to go and open the bookshop so didn’t have time to investigate and didn’t have a zoom lens with me hence the pixels.
The council have put the lease for the Eagle Café, on the end of the pier up for tender, presumably they managed to get the leasehold back, lets hope it reopens this year.


As café culture the views from the site are stunning though sometimes it can be difficult to get to due to the weather, however as you can see from the video the very determined get there in the end.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
