There’s and end to the journey

However long a journey there’s always an end. Quite a sobering thought really…

There is definitely and end to this pier. Skegness Pier was a good deal longer back in the day but now ravaged by storms it sadly never reaches much of a climax. In its heyday there was a smart theater at the end catering for the entertainment of the well-to-do seaside holiday makers of the victorian era.

Originally constructed in 1880 a severe storm removed two middle sections leaving the theater stranded on the end in 1978. Despite plans to renovate the pier to its former glory a fire ripped through the stranded theater in 1985 putting plans out of reach.

All things must finally come to end…
