A Note from the Artist

The Lowestoft Pier Lighthouses guide vessels into Lowestoft Outer and Inner Harbours.

Two piers were built at Lowestoft in 1831, either side of the entrance to the harbour, known as the Inner North and Inner South Piers. Both piers were originally 150 metres long. The pier lighthouses for Lowestoft harbour were added in 1846.

The South Pier was also extended in 1846 to 400 metres, and various buildings were added, including a bandstand and reading rooms.

The reading room was destroyed by fire in 1885 and though rebuilt, was extensively damaged again during WWII. A new pavilion was opened in 1965 with a miniature railway running the length of the pier.

Over time with structural repairs needed, the seaward end of the pier was closed in 1987 for almost six years before reopening in 1993 following repairs and refurbishment.

The sheltered harbour of Lowestoft allows access into Lake Lothing and on via lock gates into Oulton Broad.
