We returned to the pier head at high tide and this time we landed... so you don't have to ;-)
Thank you Stewie, it's a pleasure to share the photos on KHF site, the pier head is a landmark everyone in Herne Bay knows well but probably only 10% of the population has been out there (since the '78 storm).
Like the vast majority of the town, I spent many a time daydreaming about what it looks like up close, so it was a big personal achievement to finally reach the pier head, my friend and I both high 5'ed each other as soon as we landed!
The upper level really
stinks as there a good inch of bird droppings on the concrete section that has the consistency of glue, and there`s 3 ft (not an exaggeration) of bird droppings inside the pavilion.
We were only on the upper level for about 20mins, we would've been longer but the stench was getting unbearable!
I wouldn't go there in summer!
