Pier Road Fish Kiosk takes to the air on route to its new home
Despite the high winds and difficult conditions, Littlehampton’s favourite Fish Mongers took to the air today on route to its new temporary home.
Although work began on moving the kiosk a couple of weeks ago, but various technical difficulties delayed it removal until finally this morning it was ready to go.
The kiosk which was believed to weigh 4 tonnes, actually gave a true weight of 6 tonnes when under the lifting straps, which meant further adjustments were necessary before it could take to the air.
While this was all going on, the larger crane arrived in Arun Parade ready to take up its place. This larger crane, circa 100 tonnes pictured below will be used to lift in the giant sheet piling that will create the framework for the sea defences.Arun District Council Regeneration plans for Littlehampton, Arun District Council's plans for Pier road, Environment Agency Sea defence proposals for Littlehampton, fish kiosk in Pier Road, Littlehampton, Littlehampton Harbour, Riverside Fish Littlehampton
