The new landscaping scheme either side of the i360 will feature lots of original pier artefacts and its focal point will be a restored 1866 octagonal pier kiosk. It was rescued from the pier in the 1990’s and is currently dismantled and securely stored. We have recently submitted a Heritage Lottery Fund application for funding towards the project and if we are successful the public will be able to enjoy a small but essential part of the original pier. It is made of cast iron and its flamboyant design was typical of the pier. It will be reinstated as a functioning building containing information about the pier, displays and items for sale. You can see pictures of the six original kiosks in the Gallery section of this site but image 126 in ‘Early Photos’ is a good close up.
