    It is actually even better in 'real life'. The pier is as good as you'll ever see.

    Anybody with the means should consider an attempt to attend next year, I think.

    Looking good, make sure the handbrake is so or they will slip of the end.

    Looking extremely promising. Excellent top class work so far.

    Bantry Pier really looking well.

    It's hard to believe a large part of the US Atlantic naval fleet lay at anchor on Bantry Bay in Bearhaven sound for significant part of WW1. A visit to Bear Island is like a time warp, and Lonehort naval battery a must see. It's more craggy island than craggy island ever was.

    Also work on the landing stage has started
    The other photo shows the component parts of the main station building ready to assemble

    Only just seen this and can't believe I'm the first to reply. The colours and textures of the pier and mud are superb. Beautifully understated, but also - to my eyes at least - just right.
