An image taken underneath Brighton’s now derelict West Pier which was built in 1866 and closed in 1975. In the distance can be seen Brighton’s remaining open pier; The Palace Pier was built in 1891 and was renamed Brighton Pier in 2000 much to the locals disagreement.

“What I have always liked about Brighton is its impersonality. Since the 18th century, people have come, used the place and gone home again”. Lynne Truss
