About this event

The much loved Victorian pleasure pier at Hastings has reopened having undergone a major refurbishment thanks to a group of local people and funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Ramboll played a key role in the restoration and regeneration of Hastings Pier, offering strategic advice to both the Pier Charityand Hastings Borough Council.

Built in 1872, it has been subjected to an aggressive marine environment, fire, storms, troubled ownership and much neglect. Following closure in 2008, it was then ravaged by fire in 2010.
