What is left of Herne Bay pier

Back in 2013 I blogged about French Dressing, Ken Russell's first film, in which Herne Bay pier featured prominently.

This is what is left of the pier today. A stub still runs out from the shore, but this landing stage has been left improbably far out to sea - apparently halfway to the Essex coast.

But then the view from Herne Bay is like that. Behind the wind farms you can see the remains of the Maunsell forts.
