Guide to Whitby's West Pier
Oct 2nd, 2011 at 3:23am
 
...
The West Pier is located on the West Side of the town (obviously), and access is more civilised, being near the Bandstand & Whitby Lifeboat Museum.
Until a couple of weeks ago, access was available right the way from the Bandstand to the end of the Pier Extension.
...
Unfortunately, owing to few "slight" maintenance oversights from Scarborough Borough Council, mostly involving lack of use of a wonderful invention called paint, the girders on the bridge over to the extension on this side are completely shot as well now.

There is a Facebook group campaigning to Save Whitby's Piers | Recap

The West Pier also has a Stone Lighthouse at the end of the main part of it, which on most days during the tourist season, you can climb to the top of for a small fee.
