A bit about Cromer Pier

What we see today was built in 1902 and is 450 feet (140 m) long. It has had bandstands and roller-skating rings added over time, not to mention a lifeboat station. And Cromer Pier as popular as it’s ever.

I don’t know why we British have such a love for these odd structures. Why do we need to wander out on them, only to wander back again? Is it a bit like going on a ship? Or is it the feeling of space? I have no idea, though every time I see a pier I too want to walk out right to the end, have fish and chips, then wander back again with the feeling like I have achieved something.

My visit to Cromer Pier

On the day I visited Cromer pier, it was a warm afternoon and was teaming with families. The main pastime being crabbing. This entails small children lowering string into the water with a stone and a bit of bacon on the end. Then juggling it around the bottom for a bit before carefully pulling it up to see if some pugnacious crap is clinging onto the end, steadfastly refusing to give up its dinner.

This wee fellow is then bucketed with other crabs. The game is to get as many crabs as possible, with an extra bonus for the largest crab. Once the game is over, all the crabs are tipped back into the sea. Pointless but fun.
