Sad mourning for Hastings Pier



Hastings & St.Leonards. ©Andy Tuohy 2008


What  a complete tragedy and a sorry end to a sorry affair. I was due to go up to Bexhill, East Sussex for a meeting on the 5th October only to be told I should divert because Hastings Pier had gone the way of the West Pier in Brighton and burnt down.

I  exhibited prints of the area at McCarrons of Mercatoria in St. Leonards, so I know many people have a great deal of affection and pride in their locale and this will come as a bitter blow.

BBC News shows footage of the devastation.

If you want to keep up to speed with latest developments on the Pier you can go to the Hastings Pier and White Rock Trust website.
