PCC should really look at building a new pier perhaps similar to the ones in Weston-Super-Mare , Eastbourne, Bournemouth et al.  I am sure it would bring in a decent cash flow.

By all accounts the pier in Weston-Super-Mare held concerts by certain stars and bands before Covid-19 struck.

As far as I'm aware. This is the only picture out there of someone actually standing on the temporary suspension bridge built for local traffic, farmers and construction workers prior to the flooding of the valley and the building of Burrator reservoir commencing. Note Sheepstor in the background and fields or open moorland to the left of the bridge railings - which is now obviously water!

A rare one indeed.

Concorde flying up the Hamoaze during an air show in, what I would hazard a guess at sometime in the 80's

Much bigger and it would encroach on the main channel into Devonport.

Big enough to take Cruise ships.

My Gran told me that the trams were deadly as they didn't make a lot of noise, a neighbour of hers was run over and killed by one.

I remember Concorde flying over Braunton when they did the Chivenor Air Show which I reckon was about mid seventies. I remember it coming in low over the Pill (a river) at the end of Chivenor then steeply climbing like a rocket and we heard the sonic booms as it went off into the distance. As a young bhey I was pretty amazed by the size and noise of it all. I wonder if it went on to Plymouth after that?
