WESTON-SUPER-MARE, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 03: EBRUARY 03: EBRUARY 03: EBRUARY 03: EBRUARY 03: The sunlight illuminates the structure of the neglected 1867 Grade II listed Birnbeck Pier and is the only British pier which links the mainland to an island, on February 3, 2011 in Bristol, England. Birnbeck Pier, which was closed to the public in 1994 and is included on English Heritage's buildings 'at risk' register, was meant to have been redeveloped with plans that included a hotel. However, owners and developers Urban Splash, has said the redevelopment of the crumbling pier was now on hold due to the economic climate, but friends of the pier have warned that the delay is putting the structure at risk.
