A historic pier in East Sussex was destroyed by fire in 2010. It has won a prestigious architecture award after a multi-million pound redevelopment. Hastings Pier reopened in April 2016 and has just won this year’s Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize as the UK’s best new building. They call it “a masterpiece of regeneration”.

Among Hastings’ residents are 3,000 shareholders who bought £100 stakes in “the people’s pier”.
