Boscombe Pier, Boscombe, Dorset

Boscombe Pier is not a traditional seaside pier. During the 1950s the original pier showed signs of decay and it was redesigned and built in a modern way. A screen runs down the centre of the pier deck against which deckchairs can be placed.

This is a positive indication that British seaside resorts can be successfully revamped and modernized. Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway, took on this challenge along with the Overstrand building, a distinctive double-decker block of beach huts.

This makes Boscombe along with the artificial surf reef the positive and no longer rundown neighbour to Bournemouth.
