Banjo Pier, Looe

A Banjo Pier is a pier in the shape of a banjo.

The most notable example is probably the Banjo Pier in Looe, Cornwall, England (50°21′04″N 4°27′04″W / 50.3510°N 4.4512°W / 50.3510; -4.4512 (Banjo Pier, Looe, Cornwall)), as it was the first and thus the prototype for many others around the world. It was designed by Joseph Thomas and built by Daniel Taylor.[1][2]
