It is known that the pier is subsiding.During April and May 2013 both full tide channels were recording ~40mm high. The two new benchmarks should monitor any movement.By the end of July channel 2 was fluctuating between 20mm low and 30mm high. From September channel 2 was showing ~60mm low on several falling tides.
