One of the worst-kept secrets for a while has finally been confirmed by the DHB at the end of a press release concerning the redevelopment of Dover's Western Docks which is finally underway.

The Prince of Wales Pier will be closed permanently at the end of the summer.

Progress, but a great loss to the public & the anglers who enjoyed the pier.

I wonder how long it will be before public access to the Admiralty Pier will be withdrawn.
Access to the ĎAd.Pierí is much less convenient & is by courtesy of the Dover Sea Angling Association & is often withdrawn in bad weather.

Also see post # 76 of 6/4/15 in the 'Dover Marine Station' thread.

Memorial plaque at the foot of the pier.

It looks to have been relocated from another location.
