Posted On 02 Dec 2011 at 4:02 am

Parts of the West Pier are going on sale in Brighton at the weekend.

The West Pier Trust will be selling fragments of the derelict structure from the pier’s shore end compound on Saturday (3 December) from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Rachel Clark, the trust’s chief executive, said: “Despite the success of the sales held earlier in the year there is still plenty of material left.

“The pieces are mainly cast iron and were salvaged from the pier in the late 1990s.

“They are available to buy because they are damaged and/or surplus to the trust’s requirements.

“Funds raised through the sales are being put towards the trust’s heritage proposals.”

The mementos include railings, lampposts and columns.
