Mr Monkey in Southport

Trip date : 6th September, 2012
"It lights up at night so that they don't lose the pier in the dark"

Mr Monkey at the end of Southport pier Mr Monkey looking back along the pier to Southport

At the end of the pier Mr Monkey was startled by something called a Sculptural Element with integrated Seating and Orientation Lighting, which he thought was a rather cumbersome name for an interesting shiny thing. The globe at the top lights up at night so that everyone knows where the pier ends. Turning round to look at Southport, Mr Monkey was a little surprised to find that there wasn't much in the way of sea lapping around the pier supports.

You can read about the Sculptural Element at the camm design.
