The end of Felixstowe Pier...and the new one

Taking a look at the building of the new pier in Felixstowe.

Last weekend we visited the seaside town of Felixstowe in Suffolk. It's probably our most visited seaside as we take a trip there pretty much every time we go back to Ipswich to visit friends and family. On this occasion we had a look at the pier as it's undergoing a great deal of redevelopment!

On our visit last year we walked UNDER the pier for the first time and saw this ominous message!

The new pier is scheduled to reopen in August 2017. It'll be interesting to see how it differs to the old one.
