The plan: 56 piers in two weeks…

Well, in the roughest possible terms.  We’re starting from Birmingham and going to Weston (which everyone from Brum must do by law). Then it’s anti-clockwise round England and Wales to Penarth—then home.  That’s 56 piers in total, in two weeks. Kick off is planned for the 12th of Sept.

We’d love to hear your stories or meet you for a pint (you’re buying) if you’re in the area on the right day. You can see our schedule and add notes for us in this Google spreadsheet (just click and add stuff!):

  1. It’s a fun thing to do and something I have been interested in doing.

    I have taken a look at the piers you will be visiting many of which I been to on my UK travels but certainly only around 50%. I intend to do something over the next couple of years to complete the set but may I point out you have listed 55 not 56 unless I am missing something?? Please advise Pier No 56 – not on the list above.

    Look forward to hearing from you
