Clacton Pier is a pier located in the seaside resort town of Clacton-on-Sea in England. Clacton Pier, which opened on 27 July 1871 was officially the first building erected in the then-new resort of Clacton-on-Sea. A wooden structure 160 yards in length and 4 yards wide, the pier served as a landing point for goods and passengers, a docking point for steamships operated by the Woolwich Steam Packet Company, and a popular spot for promenading. By 1893, Clacton had become such a popular destination for day trippers that the pier was lengthened to 1180 ft and entertainment facilities, including a pavilion and a waiting room, were added to accommodate them.
There is a SouvenirPennies 4 die machine in a gift shop on the pier. Each design takes a new UK pound and a penny.
The machine is located in the final section of the arcade on the right of the pier. It is in the back right corner next to a 2p slot machine. Penny designs are:
1) ... Clacton Pier logo
2) ... Clacton Pier SeaQuarium
3) ... Clacton Pier, My Lucky Penny
4) ... Love Clacton, ♥
