On the night of Monday 11th March 2013, as a result of high tides and gale force winds, Swanage Pier sustained major damage to the walkway.

We are so grateful to a number of volunteers who helped to brace the affected section in the aftermath of the storm.

Following the completion of the repairs, The Pier will be officially reopened at the end of February 2014. Find out about the repair process by clicking the button below;
