    Well what can I say... easily the best explore in a long time! Ther pier was built to take rail passengers from the south to north banks of the Humber. The rails met the ferry at the end of the pier. The pier was closed to trains when the Humber bridge was constructed, and has since been put to industrial use. We found a comedy access point, and made the journey out onto the Humber. The rails were still visable along the whole pier, with a new conveyer on top of them. At the end, both passenger shelters are still standing, with their original railway ironwork intact. Despite the new industrial buildings, the pier really has an old feel to it. All that can be said about the sunset that evening is WOW!
    On our way out a car drove worryingly fast at us, and a well spoken gent informed us we had tripped the alarms and got him out of his house to find us! He was o.k really, and made us show him the access point we used, before letting us go with no fuss! ;)
