The Pier at Clacton-on-Sea was opened on 27 July 1871. A wooden structure 160 yards (150 m) in length and 4 yards (3.7 m) wide. Initially built as a landing stage for goods and passengers, and from when it opened Steamships operated by the Woolwich Steam Packet Company which docked at the pier. By the 1890s Clacton was becoming a popular destination due to its easy reach from London for day trippers and in 1893 the pier was lengthened to 1180 ft (360m), and entertainment facilities including a pavilion and a waiting room were added.
