Old Pier foundations Landing Stage 
Tynemouth pier was started in 1854 and finished in 1895.
Three years later it was demolished in a storm and rebuilt by 1909. At very low tides the old curved foundations can be seen outside the straight new pier.
On the other side of the North pier are the remains of a landing stage which was used to load passengers on ferries which ran to Newcastle. It is somewhat surprising that the timbers have lasted so well.
