is there a concrete pad to stand on? It does wonders to keep your feet out of the damp grass, though it can be rough if you drop an eyepiece!!
Yeah, that's the issue. Also you don't want the footway to be transmitting vibrations to the pier. IMO a wooden decking with a hole in the middle to clear the pier is better than concrete though you do need to be careful to avoid having vermin use the "shelter" so provided.
