QUEENS PIER RAMSEY


Queens Pier, above, is an impressive sight when you are driving into Ramsey along the coast or mountain road.


In subsequent years the Pier has fallen into a state of decline, no longer used as landing port, closed to visitors and declared unsafe. The future of Ramsey Queens Pier remains uncertain, although when I passed today at least work to make it make it safe from collapsing in to the sea was being undertaken. Rumours, suggestions and options are being considered as to renovate or demolish. I hope it's the former. The approach to Ramsey just wouldn't be the same without it.

It looks like it goes on forever, but then I read that it almost does go on forever. It would be a shame for it not be fixed up. Just the history alone should make it worth keeping.

First visit to your new blog. Very nice it is too. Where is the P.Haze humour though? Fantastic images, but darling bring back the rapier wit.

Babooshka, this is one of many classic bridge I've seen so far in this portal that I like. I really like the background and the silhouette of the bridge itself, excellent shot.

Lovely picture of a beautiful landmark, it would be a shame to lose it, Can it not be turned into a nice place for a walk with small stall or cafe or something?

Impressive is the right word. Nice to visit your blog, thank you for taking time to comment in Arradon!

Great photo. Hope they can save this pier.

Hi Babooshka. This me Faizal. Basically, I use different account for my another blog. So, instead the name "faizal" appears, the name "Mr Faizal" appears.

Is it kind of a bridge right? It must be so historical.

Jim said...

very nice perspective, looks great in b+w.

This is a lovely shot. I bet that even though it’s declared unsafe, kids still run out and play on it!

sam said...

oh this is gorgeous, do hope it can be preserved! It makes the Pier I posted today look like a miniature toy!

Aw, save it! It's wonderful, even if it is really old! Come on, it practically looks like a work of art!
Anyway, I'm thinking of doing a little feature about my favourite Kate Bush album soon on JJS, so you might want to pop by seeing as how you're a fan.
Ciao for now
