When The End Of The Pier Was Washed Away

A Memory of Bognor Regis

My parents moved to Bognor in 1961 when I was 14.
I remember when half of the pier was washed away after a terrible winter storm. The beach was piled with wood from it and it all disappeared in a day!
Bognor was left with just a pier head and a short jetty that led nowhere.
I don't think they've ever rebuilt it.
