Photographer Simon Roberts (a resident of that town, which still boasts two piers) provides a comprehensive survey of all the survivors, now fewer than half of the 100 plus that stood at the end of the Victorian era. His evocative, technically precise large format photographs can be seen at Flowers (Kingsland Road, London E2) from September 10 to October 12, with an accompanying book, Pierdom , published by Dewi Lewis.
