History

New Passage Pier officially opened on the 25th August 1863, although it didn't open to the public until the 8th September due to a Board of Trade inspector finding issue with some of the line side fences. The pier closed on 1st December 1886 with the opening of the Severn Tunnel.

The pier itself was 1,635 ft long and had it's own hotel and private gas works.
