Save Angling on Admiralty Pier
Admiralty Pier has been a mecca for sea anglers for over 100 years. Since 1903, the Dover Sea Angling Association have held events on the Pier. When the pier was damaged in the 1987 hurricane the DSAA invested over £180,000 repairing the pier and took on its management. Now Dover Harbour Board are threatening to close Admiralty Pier to angling, for good.
The Angling Trust is working with the Dover Sea Anglers Association to stop this happening.
Keep an eye on our website and sign up to our Sea Angling Newsletter for updates and more ways you can support the campaign to keep Admiralty Pier open for angling.
The Angling Trust is working with the Dover Sea Anglers Association (DSAA) to stop the closure of Admiralty Pier to sea angling and met with the Dover Harbour Authority on Thursday 6th May 2021.
As a result of this meeting, we will be meeting with the Dover Harbour Board again to discuss potential solutions to ensure angling can continue within Dover Harbour. We look forward to continuing dialogue with the Dover Harbour Board. We will continue to raise the concerns of both the local and wider sea angling community at this historically important site and fight for the future of angling in Dover.
Admiralty Pier has been a mecca for sea anglers for over 100 years with the Dover Sea Angling Association having held events on the Pier since 1903. It is at the heart of both the local sea angling community in Kent, and the national community, with anglers travelling from across the country and locally to fish off the Pier. Admiralty Pier is a location with huge cultural and historical significance and is a vital sea angling hotspot that supports the local economy and delivers many social benefits to society such as its contribution to health and wellbeing.
