During travels around the UK in 2001 I visited Folkestone in Kent on the south coast of England.
Perched opposite the (by then) inappropriately named "Pleasure Beach", I fell in love with the abandoned Pier Hotel.
The grand crescent-shaped white building sparked off all sorts of unrealistic dreams of buying it and restoring it. The balconies, the little attic windows, all overlooking the ocean.
Even the thought of exploring its interior with my camera in hand in its then derelict state excited my imagination, though I never did.
For all I know it no longer stands in any state.
