The pier which is a favourite spot for many people across the south east has taken a kicking this week. 5A3C0ED6-2FC2-4776-ADE3-AD1F4815184E.thumb.png.4d227baf6ad64ca9afcf9673e1efb606.png

Not sure if it will be closed completely to anglers in the future.

That’s a shame. Normally local authorities will look for any reason to close something so they don’t have to repair, maintain and be responsible for it.  

Yeah it seems that way. Though I have been involved in marine construction and the costs are massive. 
A few years ago I tendered for work in the lighthouses at Dover harbour. A safety boat alone was £6-700 a day before you even start. 
My favourite sure mark used to be the Dover southern breakwater, that was regularly closed for storm damage and has been shut for a fair few years now and will never open to anglers again.
