Bembridge Harbour Pier (Historic)

REF NR: 267

1. In 1864, the Bembridge Railway, Tramway and Pier Act was passed by Parliament, authorising the construction of land-reclamation works and the building of a pier. By 1878 over 800 acres of land were reclaimed, and the pier was built. Bembridge Harbour Pier was only 250 ft. long, and quite narrow too.

Moderator Notes:  The actual position of the pier is unknown to us, please advise if known. (map position is thus an estimate)
