Penzance's South Pier given upgraded heritage status

Breaking News

The heritage status of a pier in Cornwall has been upgraded by English Heritage.

The South Pier at Penzance harbour was already a Grade II listed building, but it has now been given Grade II* status.

It means the historical significance of the pier is of particularly importance.

The upgraded listing will be one of the factors the government will have to take into account before deciding if the harbour can be redeveloped.
