The object is approximately 22m in length and is not visible at any state of the tide. The wreck has been marked with an orange pellet buoy, the owner is aware and will be dealing with the situation. Mariners should navigate with caution due to this submerged danger to navigation until further notice.

Queenborough Harbour Open Day, Wed 9 Oct

Queenborough Harbour Trust

Open Invitation to the Queenborough Harbour Trust CIC Open Day Wednesday 9 October 2019 from 1500hrs – 1900hrs, The Guildhall, High Street, Queenborough.

Queenborough Harbour Trust CIC took over the running of the harbour services in Queenborough from Swale Borough Council in 2012. We would like to invite you to an exhibition of the changes that have been made in the harbour during that time. Displays and presentations will include the renovation of the All Tide Landing, the piling of the walkway and the installation of sixty additional moorings including the finger pontoons made possible by the Coastal Community Fund as well as footage of the most recent Classic Boat Festival.  

The Open Day will be on a drop-in basis so please come along at your convenience between 1500hrs and 1900hrs. QHT Directors and members of staff will be on hand to answer any queries you may have and will be actively seeking suggestions as to how the harbour might be further developed.  Teas and coffee will be available.
