Birnbeck Pier was built between 1864 and 1867 and is a quite unique structure as it is the only British pier that links the mainland to an island (Birnbeck Island).
During Victorian times the Pier and Birnbeck Island were the Victorian equivalent to a modern times fun park, but gradually over the years the Pier has fallen into a near derelict state.
Birnbeck was also a major transportation link in Victorian times with scheduled steam ship services arriving from and departing to various destinations which included Cardiff, Minehead, Ilfracombe and Lundy Island. The last of these sailings, by the MV Balmoral, took place in 1979.
Today, the pier is still home to the Weston-super-Mare Lifeboat Station, but is not yet in a suitable state to be opened to the public as an attraction.
