Shotley Gate Pier

Dashed out at lunchtime to see if I could find a photograph. I drove up to Alton Water, but I refuse to pay £3 for all day parking when I am only going to be there 30 minutes at the most…why no option to pay a pound for an hour? So, I jumped back in the car and headed down the road and eventually reached the end of the Shotley Peninsula which looks like a fascinating place to photograph. Quite run down in parts but bang opposite Harwich in one direction and Felixstowe in the other…there are definitely some interesting pictures to be had.

This shot, as you might have guessed is of the derelict pier. It’s all fenced off so you can’t walk along it – looking at it, I don’t think you’d really want to. Across the water you can see Harwich, directly behind me is the port of Felixstowe.

It doesn’t look so bad under the pier.
