...and an awful monstrosity it is too. Comment left on 31 July 2003 by Anon
What a majestic mess! If the original Smeaton piers, are 'LISTED' structures, why was this design allowed? If some funding source could be secured, could a quality Civil Engineering contractor be found to reinstate a graceful single mid support bridge (pointing into ebb flow) to avoid silting in the 'basin'?
