I expect many people from South West of England/Wales, remember the terrible news of the Weston Super Mare Pier burning down in July 2008.
I went there shortly after the event and managed to get close enough to take this photo.
It was a terrible thing to see.
Not that I could say that piers are that important in my life but I think it was an asset to this seaside town and I had known it since I was a small child when I used to go there on Sunday School outings.
Over the next couple of years, the old pier was dismantled, strengthened and widened.
Progress seemed to be very slow and whenever we visited Weston, we took the occasional photo but thought that it would never get finished.
However, when we revisited a few weeks ago after a very long time without going there, I was able to snap the photo below and think it is a definite improvement.
