I visited Mayflower Park today to take pictures of the remains of Southampton Pier. I understand there are plans to redevelop the area, Sorting out some of my old pictures prompted this visit. At the time of the fire I was living in the area and on hearing via Radio Solent the Pier on fire and seeing the smoke I visited the area and took this picture (below) of the Pavilion building burning in 1987.

The 270 m pier was opened on 8 July 1833 as Victoria pier and was built to give steamer services somewhere to dock.
