The landward end of the pier and the pier head are now separated by a half-mile stretch of water, two gaps having been cut by the Army as a counter-invasion measure at the beginning of World War II. Bridges to the seaward end were restored after the war, but the centre sectiion was torn down by a powerful storm in 1978,and has not been rebuilt since.
