This is one of two piers in Portsmouth, the other being Clarence Pier. It has been a huge draw for visitors since the Victorian era and has survived three major fires, one during the filming of the film "Tommy", the 1975 film based on The Who's 1969 rock opera album musical Tommy. Hellraiser Who drummer Keith Moon was in the film of course and what's the betting he had something to do with the fire! Only joking Keith in case you decide to sue me, oh, I forgot, you carked it years ago!
