New Build

The proposed new promenade pier and pavilion at Bridlington will, it is hoped, be begun this year. The plans prepared by Messrs Mangnall and Littlewoods of Manchester have been passed by the Urban District Council and a Board of Trade Order is being applied for during the present Parliamentary session. The pier will be about 240 yards in length and approached from the lower parade. The concert pavilion is to accommodate about 1,500 persons. [British Architect 16 March 1900 p196]

BRIDLINGTON QUAY. - An inquiry has been held at Bridlington Quay into the construction of the new parade extension scheme embracing sea defences, a new footpath, and pavilion, at a total cost of £32,800. Messrs Manngall and Littlewood are the architects. Mr. W. H. Littlewood explained the designs for the new pavilion and shops. The building was to be octagon in shape, and shelter accommodation provided for 2,000 persons. On the western side would be a raised gallery. The building would be mainly of timber and iron, with plate glass in front, and large windows on three sides. There would be four entrance swing‑doors, and in addition the whole of the glass front would be made to open in case of necessity. An octagon lantern light in the centre of the large hall would act as a ventilator, and windows around would open. The roof of the refreshment‑rooms was to be of concrete, to be used for promenade or refreshment purposes, and a raised platform would be built in the hall to accommodate forty performers. Dressing rooms and other necessary offices were specified. [Building News 31 July 1903 p136]
