Sun Pier, Chatham. open weekend

Hi folks,
today we got the bus, yes you heard the bus to Chatham to witness the official reopening of the pier.

Lots of attractions including the Edith May, a new Jet Stream Inflatable  (in Yellow) giving some "Wet and Wild" rides up and down the river and some nice weather to boot.

Looking the other way up the river towards Rochester with the Castle and Cathedral in the distance.

I donned my big lens and got this of both the Castle and Cathedral from the pier in Chatham.

Looking back down the river the famous Command House with St Mary's on Dock Road behind.

Sun Pier had many attractions including the Steam Engine and a Venison Burger stall for lunch.

Bric-a-brac on some stalls and this rather dear moth eaten Hare.

On of my favourites was this illuminated letter which I would have bought and hung on the wall if I was single and my name was Roger.

Look closely at the Piano inside the exhibition hall, it is full sized and made out of cardboard boxes.

Lastly a view of the stalls from the balcony showing the array of colours of the marquees. 

Had a good day, thanks for looking.

Luv, Mike


  1. Hi Mr Mechanic. Thanks for taking me by bus to Chatham, had a great time, bit disappointed with the attractions, some of the art stuff was very weird and expensive. loved the piano and the guitar.The jacket potato wasn't bad either. Mrs Egg.

  2. Love the castle and cathedral......great shot ! Did you try the venison burgers for lunch ?
    I would have bought the illuminated R for my surname !
    Roast leg of pork for lunch.........have a great Sunday Mike and Sue !

  3. My favourite old girl is moored back at the Medway then!

  4. Sun Pier! ... mum used to take us there, to the cafe on the pier, every Friday during the school holidays after visiting Rochester market. many happy memories feeding the pigeons!
