the flats one is very similar to what Ilchester Square and St Andrews' Square used to look like (can'tremember that part as you come thru the arch) but I think this may have been taken in Liverpool
2nd pic I thought may have been looking towards Egremont with the Egremont Pub and Davy Jones Locker in the distance but there's no seawall - again probably Liverpool

If you reverse the second picture, it becomes more recognisable, with the old Floral Pavilion in the right background.

Fortes Limited became the owners of the Pier in 1968 but on 21st September 1971 the last ferry from New Brighton left the landing stage. Repairs were made to the promenade pier but it was not simply a paying proposition. Finally, in July 1978, the pier was dismantled.

I remember the tide used to cover the walkway around the boating lake. If my memory serves me right, It used to be a wooden walkway around the boating lake. So i think probably it must have come around the fort, but don't know how much of the path up to the fort was cut off by the tide.
