My friend and i are planning a day trip to do some pier photography using our new nd filters.
Ideally we would like to shoot some small old or derelict piers which would not be too far from Milton Keynes.
I was thinking maybe down near portsmouth / southampton way or somewhere on the east coast near Yarmouth?
Anyone know of some good locations?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I'll take this opportunity to mention a little used feature we have called Photo Locations. Sadly on this occasion it doesn't fulfil your needs, because no one has written a guide to an area nearby that has a pier. But for future reference...and to alert others to it...you simply go to Photo Locations and search for the key word...in this case Pier and it will bring up a map of locations with articles mentioning piers. Use it to look for any subject. If you try it using your specialist keyword and find a gap, please submit a short article describing the location and why it's good.
Southwold has a great pier...although not derelict or small. As it's out of season now I'm sure there are some great shots to be had
Cromer has a victorian pier - not derelict but quite photogenic.
Swanage has a very good pier in lovely condition and the remaining stumps from the old one side by side, which you can see in my PF
Walton & Clacton, not exactly derelict, but originally Victorian, probably too far to tavel anyway.
Lots of old derelict Peers in parliament.

Aren't there just?
Formerly prominent people one thought had long faded into retirement (or even death!) but are still there, making laws to govern us. Hmm....
Hastings pier is in a poor state not too sure how far that is from portsmouth / southampton way
Good luck, Ian
Brighton is closer and IIRC the West Pier is in VERY poor shape.

West Pier, Brighton is in very good shape for photographers, especially if you are fortunate to have a good sunset ?
