Saltburn pier, Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorkshire

Saltburn Pier located in Saltburn-by-the-Sea is the last pier remaining in Yorkshire.

Construction started in 1867 and the 1,500 feet (460 m) pier opened in May 1869, with a steamer landing stage at the head of the pier and two circular kiosks at the entrance.

Access to the pier was difficult from the town via the steep cliff so a wooden Cliff Hoist was constructed in 1870 that allowed 20 people to be placed in a wooden cage and then lowered by rope to beach level.
