The Banjo Pier is so named as it is roughly banjo shaped when viewed from upon high.
Located on the east side of the Looe river mouth, the breakwater protects boats from stormy seas. It was the first and thus the prototype for many other banjo piers around the world.
It was designed by Joseph Thomas in the late 19th century and built by Daniel Taylor.
Today, Looe is the most frequently flooded coastal town in Britain and a new scheme is proposed to combat future inundation which should complete in 2026.
This includes a tidal barrier , a southern breakwater to prevent overtopping of the flood gates during tidal surges and an extension to the Banjo pier, creating a low water landing stage providing boat access at all states of the tide.
