Birnbeck Pier, WSM

Author Ratters - Last updated: 25.01.2013

Have been down by this pier many times in the past from the shore for coastal/long exposure shots etc but each time the tide has never been in place to make it out. It wasn’t til it was mentioned on here recently plus a Saturday with a spare few hours just gone that I looked into the tide times/levels & they were as good as they were gonna get. Unfortunately even though dark stormy skies were wanted, that rain that came with them wasn’t so welcome & cut the visit extra short


If anyone is thinking of visiting you need to be extra aware of the tides. Seriously. Plus allow plenty of time to get across as it’s very rocky/uneven/wet/slippery & it is surprising how fast the clock is ticking whilst preoccupied with navigating your way over


Also the place is in a really bad way & even me being known to push & risk things at times when at locations didn’t venture off of the safe concrete of the structure. Bit of a three shot wonder really but glad to have finally set foot on there & thought I’d share anyways

Ordinarily we do our ‘sightseeing’ during the week. Security seem a little less ‘on the ball’, perhaps they’re not expecting visitors in the same way they are at a weekend.
