The Pier has pointed a challenging finger into the English Channel from Teignmouth seafront for almost 140 years. Its initial purpose was for the convenience of boat travellers, but it kept pace with public demand and was nurtured as an epicentre of boundless pleasure and entertainment.

The pier has had an ever-changing life and had extensions added and removed, boats bumping into it, deck sections cut away and replaced, bombs dropped next to it, machine gun bullets riddling it and has even had bits blown away by dynamite. It has been the subject of numerous photographs, paintings and postcards and was even featured in a play, but this is the first time that this unique structure has had a book written about it.
