Situated at the junction of Berrow Rod and Sea View is a very ornate drinking fountain which is no longer working. Probably a good thing as it sits in the middle of a busy junction. It was built in 1897 and a later inscription recognises the Queen's diamond jubilee.
Britain's shortest PierIn 1858, a stone pier was built by the Somerset Central Railway, and shortly afterwards, a steamer service to Wales was inaugurated. This was never a commercisal success and ended in 1888. The pier still retains its railway lines but under a surface coating of concrete. This concrete pier was built in 1911-14 and claims to be the shortest in Britain. Sadly, it only houses flashing arcade games.
Heading back out of Burnham, saw this, possibly, Victorian shelter. Thought it was a bandstand at first but not much room for a brass band on there.
Now this is what I call original. Not many bus shelters like these in Britain. Good to see planners and councils have a sense of humour in these times. This was between Berrow and Brean.
Not a bad average time for once, a fraction under 13 mph. Seemed to have a headwind most of the time as well although it wasn't too strong. Although 95+% of the ride was flat it was still fairly hard work.
