Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, UK
Penarth Pier is one of the last remaining Victorian piers in Wales. The pier opened in February 1895 and the original structure was of cast iron with a timber deck. A wooden pavilion was added to the pier-head in 1907.
In the 1920s the pier had enhancements of a reinforced concrete landing stage and an art deco pavilion.
On August Bank Holiday Monday 1931 a fire destroyed the pier and the wooden pavilion was not replaced.
