News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

As far as I can tell, the pier was first built about 1883-1885 by the Rochester Bridge Wardens.

There's some early postcards of the pier here: http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/Kent-Piers.html

Unfortunately I can't seem to find any info on this pier so if anyone can add anything I would be pleased to read it!
