Virtual West Pier

F10 Studios is a Brighton-based company specialising in virtual 3D architectural models. The company approached the Trust  in 2009 proposing to make a model the West Pier in its heyday, free of charge to the Trust. The result is an  detailed representation of the pier created solely from plans and photographs held by the Trust and its consultant engineers, Hemsley Orrell. The eventual aim is to create a virtual tour of the pier where you can walk through the pier in its 1920’s heyday condition.

Here is a video to introduce this exciting project:

West Pier Dive

Footage of a dive in May 2008 on Brighton/Hove west pier. As far as I know this is the only scuba footage of this pier, due to it's hazardous nature.
I did not penetrate the submerged structure, and visibility was a good 5 metres. The structure is unsafe, lots of monofilament line, nets and large loose bits of iron, we carefully researched tides and weather, vis was excellent as required, dive it at your own risk.
