Have you climbed a vertical pier?
Sadly I wasn’t there long enough to see it fully lit, nor to climb the tower. At £1.6 million it hardly represents value for money, but it is definitely different. Part of a regeneration programme to breathe new life into this North Yorkshire town, it’s not so much a pier as a viewing platform, with 360 degree views of Redcar.
Renamed the Redcar Beacon, following a public vote, the tower has free admission and cafe facilities on the ground floor. What was I doing in Redcar? Attending an open evening for a friend’s latest venture. If you happen to be passing, say ‘hello’ to The Clock Gallery. There are some great photos on show.
