Birnbeck Pier, Weston-Super-Mare - North Somerset (UA)

Birnbeck Pier is a unique and nationally important structure connecting the mainland below the Prince Consort Gardens to Birnbeck Island.

The Council is now working towards the potential Compulsary Purchase Order of the pier with guidance and funding from Historic England.
