Watch rare footage of holidaymakers and locals on Morecambe pier back in 1901

Morecambe’s two piers were a major attraction in the resort for many decades.

Central and West End piers drew hundreds of thousands of visitors in their lifetimes, and many people still have great affection for them as well as fond memories.

Darren Yates from Living History AI Enhanced has released a fascinating video of West End Pier, Morecambe, in 1901 which is a short clip from a film that was originally shown at the

Victorian Winter Gardens Theatre in Morecambe in June 1901.

A look through our archives unearthed these old pictures of fun filled days on the piers, before a storm in 1977 put paid to West End Pier and a fire in 1991 brought an end to Central Pier.
