The reason they stopped the ferry at new brighton is there was a dispute with a worker who used to maintain the landing stage / jetty and they couldnt find anybody else so it came into disrepair cause of the sea salt then they just scrapped it along with the Pier.. smile

Nah you can't say that. World War one and then World War two (The sequel) is the correct answer.

No WW1 and the tower would have been maintained. No WW2 and hotels and other buildings would have been erected along Harrison Prom. I blame the Germans laugh
