Cleethorpes Pier sale the start of very exciting times to come
THE iconic Pier has been sold – promising a “phenomenally good” future for Cleethorpes.
Owner and local business man, Bryn Ilsley, has accepted an offer for the landmark but is keeping the buyers identity under wraps for now.
However, Swindells Auctioneers, who were in charge of the sale, have confirmed it went for “considerably more” than the £400,000 guide price.
Auction manager Tina Waterfall is confident the new owners are the best for the job.

She said: “This is the buyer that I think will be phenomenally good for Cleethorpes and the future of the Pier.
“We are very happy with the purchaser. It is looking like it will be the start of a very, very exciting time for Cleethorpes.
“It looks like it will be in secure hands.”
Contracts are now being exchanged and it is hoped that the keys will be handed over in the next two weeks.
After the Pier failed to sell at auction, bidding wars broke out among buisness owners and companies who wanted to take the venue on.
Swindells declined to confirm what the new owner’s plan is for the Pier, which has been a nightclub in recent history.
The auctioneers are now looking for properties to include in their March auction. Phone 01522 789191 for more information.
