Broken Beauty

Broken Beauty

This is Hastings Pier at sunset. It looks stunning with the sweeping skies of the southern coast. The Pier has an extraordinary heritage, particularly with the pavilion as a music venue.

Sadly, after many years of dereliction and neglect from a series of owners it was devastated by fire in 2010. Two people were arrested for arson but no charges were ever made.

The community has been fighting for years for this broken icon to be rebuilt and brought back into use. Finally, after a compulsory purchase order from the council, the pier is in the safe hands of the Hastings Pier and White Rock Trust who have funding and plans for it’s resurrection.

Please visit the Trust for more information and a chance to purchase a plank. Just click on the image for the link.
