This is the remains of the old pier in Swanage,in the background you can see the "Wellington Clock Tower".
Originally stood at the southern end of London Bridge – installed there in 1854 at a cost of £700, it did not keep good time. With increasing traffic, it became something of an obstruction and it was removed to Swanage in 1867. The clock never came. It used to possess a spire but that became unsafe and was removed in 1904.
