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!
