Artwork Description:   Photography: Digital, Black White and Photo on Paper. Cleethorpes Pier, Lincolnshire Photography: 20” X 14” Archival print signed by the artist. ORIGINAL PRINT - Limited Edition of 25 Crafted Prints ultraHD Photo Print on Fuji Crystal DP II Cleethorpes Pier is a pleasure pier in the town of Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire, England. It originally cost £8,000, which was financed by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway later the Great Central Railway. It was officially opened on August Bank Holiday Monday 1873. 1,200 feet 370 m in length to span the unusually large distance between low and high tide limits , the pier comprised a timber deck and pavilion constructed in 1888 , supported on iron piles. A section was, however, cut out of the pier during the Second World War to impede its use in any German invasion attempt. The original pavilion was destroyed by fire in 1903 but in 1905 a new one was built, halfway along the pier, and also a cafeteria and shops at the entry from the promenade. The pavilion offered a venue for dances and concerts. Cleethorpes Borough Council assumed ownership of the pier in 1936, the year that the resort gained borough status. A £50,000 investment in 1968 made the pavilion one of the most modern on the East Coast. As well as traditional summer shows, it housed wrestling, coin stamp fairs and dance festivals. However, after a series of losses on the summer show, the council sold the pier in 1981 to Funworld of Skegness, who later themselves put the pier up for sale. The council declined an offer to buy back the pier, saying it would need a £200,000 reconstruction. Following this, nightclub owner Mark Mayer purchased the pier and, after an investment of £300,000, it reopened as Pier 39 a modern nightclub on 4 September 1985 it was a very good night club. Subsequent developments included a shelter for those awaiting access to the night-club, and pier widening with new underneath piles distinct from the originals. The Pier reopened in August 2015, the iconic venue now holds the 1873 restaurant offering fine dining. It is the worlds largest fish chip restaurant. The Promenade, a public house serving traditional pub food and The Victoria Tea room for afternoon tea and dishes from an appetising bistro menu. It’s a prime location for live entertainment in Cleethorpes hosting acts from around the globe. With its stunning views and sophisticated facilities, the historic venue also holds many functions and conferences ranging from weddings and birthday parties to corporate events. The Pier, Cleethorpes is already well on its way to achieving its aim of restoring regional pride. Voted by members of the National Piers Society, The Pier, Cleethorpes has been named Pier of the Year 2016.
