A change of scenery today. Drove down to Burnham on Sea and walked along the beach, a cup of tea at the Bay View Cafe and back through the town and the Berrow Road.
This was built in 1832 and is mainly made of wood. Some of the 9 uprights are metal. It was built to protect shipping from the extensive mud flats that exist in this area.
Britain's shortest Pier
This pier was built between 1911 and 1914 by a railway company to service ferries that plied from Somerset to Wales. That was not a commercial success and is now just basically an amusement arcade with a cafe attached. Never go in the the prices are higher than the Bay View Cafe.
A steady 2.6 miles today in very pleasant weather.
