Went to Birnbeck Pier to try to get some close up shots. After climbing over sharp rocks and battling uneven ground I got this shot of Birnbeck Pier. Being close to this old monument you can see how the old pier has crusted over by the natural world of the sea. And also how this once grand monument in Weston is slowly falling apart. The only life that seemed to be enjoying the old pier was the local seagulls. Picture: Troy Hares Went to Birnbeck Pier to try to get some close up shots.
