Birnbeck Pier, off the coast at Weston-Super-Mare, was built in 1864. It still stands, although now derelict, and is unique among British piers in that it links an island to the mainland. The pier housed amusements, a funfair, café and a pavilion. Part of its attraction was to accept steamers from the Welsh coast and other ports in Dorset and North Devon.
