The recent stormy weather and high seas have caused a centuries old feature to be exposed on Bridlington’s North Beach.
It appears to be an old wooden jetty, probably one used by small pleasure craft in the days when hiring a rowing boat was part and parcel of the traditional seaside holiday.
Historians have suggested that some form of landing jetty had been situated in this area of the beach for centuries.
The Echo’s Southside correspondent, Aled Jones, has taken a picture of it to share with our historically minded readers.
He has also sourced, from his own private collection, an early Edwardian postcard that shows the jetty in its original state (middle right, background).
It also portrays the sea defences and seafront promenade before the Victoria Terraces were constructed in 1906.
Do you have any illustration, photo or knowledge of history of Bridlington’s wooden landing platforms and jetty’s?
