Red Pier (Douglas)

Description: The Red Pier forms part of Douglas Harbour on the east coast of the Isle of Man (NGR 23850 47518). Brown's Guide to the Isle of Man of 1876 says, "Along the wall which runs on the north side of this pier a seat has been constructed, and forms a convenient resting place for the weary tourist. The extreme end of the pier, however, the head on which the old lighthouse stands, is a more favourite resort, as from this point a good view is obtained of all the vessels entering or passing out of the harbour...The Red Pier was erected in place of an older structure, at the expense of Government, and was completed in the year 1800."
