There won’t be many people reading this who haven’t got a warm and fuzzy feeling when a seaside pier is mentioned or appears on tv. They’re an essential part of a visit to the beach – sand in your trunks, sticky candyfloss in your hair, seagulls pursuing you for your fish and chips, donkey rides, a stiff onshore breeze…and a walk along the pier! Whether it was a pier from your childhood or a pier from today they hold a unique place in the heart and just beg to be walked along. What do you do when you’re on a pier? There’s so much choice! From going on rides, looking out to sea or sampling the many delights on offer, it’s easy to while away the hours.. We’ve become rather attached to piers and we’re guessing that if you’ve looked at this page you like at least one too! Please read on to find out what we found so appealing about not just one but more than 50 seaside piers!
Hazel and Jay Preller first met on Weston-super-Mare’s Grand Pier in 2007 for a cup of coffee but fell in love and had their first kiss at the end of the pier!
Following the fire of 2008 at the Grand Pier and then at Fleetwood Pier in Lancashire a few weeks later the couple decided to visit all the piers in the country for a kiss at the end of each one.
‘From Piers To Eternity” tells of their two year quirky journey around the country, not just kissing on piers but also finding out about piers, the towns they grace, arguing about what a pier should be and falling in love with each other as well as with the piers. 60 pier kisses later, Jay and Hazel married on Brighton Pier but can still be found in a passionate embrace on the end of a pier or enthusing about piers to anyone who will listen!
