This image illustrates Southwold Pier during low light photographed from a drone at high elevation ASL (Above Sea Level).
Southwold has a superb, award-winning beach and one of the country’s most famous piers.
The pier, built in 1900, was devastated by a severe gale in 1934 when the storm’s force destroyed the pier’s head.
The pier was further damaged during the second world war and, for many years, was a shadow of its former glory.
Following a major refurbishment by its present owner, the pier has seen enormous visitor numbers and has served to reverse the former declining interest in coastal piers. It represents one of the many highlights of the town.
