Caption for Weston Super Mare, The Pier 1887: This sheltered cove below the Toll Road clearly shows the Carboniferous limestone that forms Worle Hill. In the foreground is a 'stack', a pillar of rock isolated from the cliff by erosion. On the spur of rock a wooden ladder can just be seen. This gave access to the cove for bathers. In the distance, a paddle steamer leaves Birnbeck Pier jetty.
