Quite a common site along this coast. The prevailing south west wind has a profound effect on the growth of this tree, a hawthorn I think.
Birnbeck PierThis now derelict pier is just north of Weston and is the only one in the country that connects the mainland to an island, Birnbeck Island. It is a grade 2 listed building which has been closed since 1994 and is due to be developed when the council and the owners unlock horns. It used to be a boarding point for steamers plying their trade in the Bristol Channel, and is still home to the Lifeboat Station, in theory anyway.
Going back along the front, their was a rally of old buses. This is my pick of the bunch and thanks to the steward for holding the bike. I dont think the owner would have appreciated me leaning it up against this gleaming machine.
That folks, is an an update of photos that was promised.
