More information:

Sculptor Charles Hadcock on Brighton beach with his sculpture which cost £40,000 of lottery money and was criticised by locals who said it looked like a piece of scrap metal when it was first installed in 1998. But it quickly became one of Brighton and Hove's most photographed attractions and was adopted by local kids as a skateboard ramp and climbing frame. Charles Hadcock drew his inspiration for it from the Victorian engineering of the Palace Pier and the derelict West Pier.
