On August 16th 2022, I snuck off at 6am for another look at the work going on at Totland Pier. The children were asleep but I was wide awake so it seemed like a good use of my time.
It had been about two and a half months since my last visit with Tony the Drone so there had been plenty of progress.
The roof and most of the walls are now in place, and you can see that it's going to have a similar look to The Bay Cafe (the cafe has remained closed this summer - I'm not sure why). The upper deck balcony on the new building looks particularly appealing.
I think the whole thing looks excellent, considering that the pier was being gobbled up by the sea a few years ago.
Anyway, here's the video from the August 2022 visit. Sorry about the music, the free ones with my video editing software are not the best.
And here's the video from late May 2022 for comparison. You can read more about the plans for Totland Pier in this blog.
