Taken today (Sunday 27th September), and work carries on Sundays too, with workers spotted in the planned restaurant in the old pavilion! The waterproofing and insulation are now installed in the visitors centre, and battens are being added for the cladding; which is to be timber recycled from the old deck.
Stainless steel features are to be added to the exterior of the visitors centre, together with a glass balustrade around the roof to provide protection from the wind, but still allowing for good views from the roof. Meanwhile, electric wiring and ventilation is being installed to the inside of the visitors centre.
As reported before, the 100 year-old cast iron balustrade is being reinstated, having been repaired as required, and protected by 6 coats of marine grade paint! Trusses, deck beams and bracing continue to be restored/replaced further down the pier.
For more information, see the Hastings Pier Charity website, the photograph above is reproduced thanks to them, cheers, and many thanks to Melvyn Creber for the middle photograph, copied from facebook, cheers to you too!
