Yesterday afternoon high winds and a very high tide combined to cause considerable damage to the walkway. One of the supporting floats close to the security gate broke free causing a section of the walkway to collapse. Temporary repairs have been carried out, but access is very dangerous.
If you really must use the walkway, this is only possible at low water, with the floats aground. Please proceed with extreme caution 1 person at a time. Many planks are loose, some are missing and many others are a significant trip hazard. Access at high water or anytime when the floats are lifted with the tide is not possible.
We apologise for the inconvenience and we are doing everything possible to have the walkway back in use as soon as we can.
UPDATE 30 Jan 2018: Emma, the new Harbour Manager, has advised us yesterday that the walkway has been open again for some time.
