Hunstanton Pier Built 1870. The pier pavilion was destroyed by fire in 1939 The pier was damaged by fire again in the 1950s Almost the entire structure was washed away by a fierce storm in 1978. What remained of the pier extended just fifteen feet outwards from the amusement arcade and cafe that was built on the site of the original entrance. In 2002, the entire building, as well as the remains of the pier, were destroyed in a fire. As the building was so badly damaged, firemen could not determine the cause of the fire. Today, a new arcade and bowling alley complex occupies the site.

This has now been modified & is an amusement arcade, but nothing else of the pier exists.

A good example of the Cenotaph style of memorial.
