Fleetwood Pier - RIP
Sadly, Fleetwood Pier is no more. Burning down in 'mysterious circumstances' in September 2008. There will be few very local adults that dont have childhood memories of visits to the pier, either having a ride in the little blue helicopter that rose a whole two foot off the ground at the speed of an inch a minute, or so it appeared!..or feeding pennies into the penny falls machine, that I swear had the pennies glued to the shelves because they never did fall!
The remaining Pier structure was subsequently deemed unsafe and completely demolished. A very sad day indeed.
