    Will the East pier ever open again to allow fishing and visitors etc to get on?

    probably not... they can barely repair the west pier as the walls are crumbling so making the east pier safe enough would be too much money. but we live in hope.

    badly done too whitby in general.the residents caused uproar a few yrs back asking for something to be done.there was money available but it all went on marine drive and the kitty was empty.scarbrough gets whitby dosnt its always been that way.

    lottery funding was available bud but that went else were too.
    more historic value in saving the piers at whitby,the people who visit whitby per season outweighs scarbrough.
    surely repairing it now,saying that they have known about the vast repairs for yrs but nothing was done about it.when thoughs piers fall imagine the effect whitby would sustain.then it will be panick stations.surely for tourism purposes you would think it in there best interest to save the piers,because both are need off drastic repair.

    Trying to remember when the East Pier extension was closed... anybody ?

    I remember fishing of the east pier extension, many moons ago,but the little grey cells arent what they were . I also remember turning up one evening and finding that the access bridge had been removed. Sad day that .

    On the question of Whitby Harbour extensions ,well, its very old news, getting more than a token glance from anybody with the authority to say, yes, lets repair, well, dont hold your breath, I seem to recall that many local people , including the Forum owner has had many a cross word with the powers that be in regard to this and other matters, with little result.

    They are about to spend a few million on stabilising the west.seem to find that a stretch.....if that's the case there seems little chance of the east!

    i certainely wouldnt believe what i read or hear about funding the piers repairs.theres been multiple reports of money available it always goes elswere.if it does happen they will be in so much of a state its going to cost treble the amount to restore the piers.scarbrough council need a board change,take a cut in wages and sort there heads out and give whitby half of what gets spent on scarbrough,without the piers whitby wnt be worth visiting,it'll be flooded out.

    Maybe your little grey cells need a workout as well as mine Simon...:)

    I vaguely remember there being some sort of barrier to stop anglers getting access to the east pier before the plank bridge was removed , a barrier that was cheerfully ignored !
