Thanks you guys!  Cherokee, I have been staring at your top photo for an hour.  It is clear that nowhere do we have steps, but only slopes.  Quite wide, too.  It all makes an attractive assembly, and I >>> MUST <<< do something with it.  Heaven help me, I cannot resist it.
.
Yet I am puzzled.  What on earth is the item ringed?  I too have looked at lots of photos, but this is the very first time that I have seen any inkling of that.  There is a shadow across it so it might be some sort of decoration set in the road surface. ???  Odd.  What do others make of it?

Skipper,

Here are a few links to photo collections of Cromer Pier. Hope these help some. Just sit back and take a long look at these photos. Some of them may answer some of your questions.

Try this link Skipper, it shows the details a bit more for you.

Give the link a while before it jumps to the photo.

Another link. It’s a compass!!


“David Ward, Cromer Prospect lead artist, has worked with many people on a permanent installation that celebrates the town’s principal lifeboats set in Cromer Pier’s forecourt. Twenty-four granite stones, each one representing a lifeboat, have been set along lines looking out to sea, pointing in the direction of rescue missions.”

Oh WOW!!!!!  grin
What a treasure trove!  A cornucopia of riches!  Thank you, folks.  It is obvious that the place is much loved.

So that circle is a compass.  Odd that I never saw it when modelling before.  I show below my original entrance - it does not require much alteration except the inclusion of the compass.

I don’t remember it being there when I went. Perhaps it is something recent.

Skipper,

Here is another photo I found of one of those slopes/ramps that you were looking at above.


And, if you look close at the second photo, you’ll see that there are several ramps along that wall.

Yes, that is my thought too.  Thanks, Wendy.

Cherokee, your photo just about wraps it up.  There’s even a ramp from one part of the beach to another.  Well, I reckon that I have enough information to start modelling.  Thanks a bunch, guys.

Here we are - I think that this is how it goes.  I’ll give it a good rest for now and take another look at it in the morning.

This is the cliff face rendered.  Now we have stuff to add and a little tickle at the texture.  cool smile
And to think that I set out just to bend the road!  It’s all your fault, Cherokee.
