    .....or give it the old Redcar pier treatment and just let it fall to bits and don't replace it. :eek: :(

    if your relying on dunnings cronies you will be disappointed
    they will get outside firm in to monitor re redcar beacons birds
    least the big seas washed the bird c--p off
    seriously hope all is well with structural survey

    Hya I rang redcar & cleveland council yesterday afternoon. The answer I got back after going through

    3 departments, was that it will be open on FRIDAY, but didn't mention which one. No mention of damage

    or inspection ???. Could this be a smoke screen we wil have to wait & seeeeeeeeeee

    Cheers Caraman.

    Unless your mate is a structural engineer this might be sending out the wrong message.


    If the gate is locked, it's locked for a reason.


    Not worth risking your own safety or anyone else's safety.


    If anyone had an accident on there like a railing giving way, where you you stand legally. That is if you survived.

    Howdo, ok then there was no visual damage e.g boards up, railing hanging off

    Maybe the gate being locked is just a precaution until someone has inspected it properly before giving it the all clear.


    Safety comes first nowadays and local councils are just $hit scared of being sued for any little thing.

    Least the council bother with saltburn pier. Look at state of whitby east and Blyth piers up here. Cambois has fallen apart and the other one, the boards (railway sleepers) lift in big seas. Was on there one night and 2 other lads fishing, one starts lifting the boards and telling the other that one needs doing. Starts hammering nails in. Think was the same night a lad was using rabbit as bait. Strange place that Blyth is.

    The pier is funded by the lottery trust not the council

    Hya all been down Saltburn pier this afternoon as tide was turning.Having read the possible damage

    been done to the pier I made straight for under the amuesment decking to see what damaged had

    been caused. There was at least ( 6 ) very heavy main timber beams ( 12'' x 8'') either missing or very badly

    fractured aswell smaller beam the same size disloged. There was all so a number of ( 6'' x 3'') timbers fixed to

    the underside of the main beams up against the stone wall to rebuff the sea when crashing into the wall &

    hitting the floor of the arcade these were totaly brocken off & gone for drift wood. There were workmen

    starting to corden off area's were the sea wall & cast iron railing had been smashed away.I asked had he

    heard any thing reguarding been reopened his comments were there is a hole in the arcade floor, you can

    see the front entrance is buldgeing out over, & there is suppost to be a inspection / meeting tommorow.

    Will the council take the risk with all that damage to the arcade & let the pier be open to fish in the near future

    I think not. The workman said the pier entrance to the arcade damage letting in the mountainas seas.He

    said he didn't think any legs had moved. I couldn't see along the pier to make out if any damage had been

    done further along. I am not a civil engineer just been in the construction industry all my life & just my thougths.


    Cheers lads Caraman

    PS took loads of photo's but don't know how to download or pass on sorry.
