Adjacent to the historic quay, we constructed a new 60t pontoon secured to the listed walls, using twin seven tonne guide rails.
Access is via a new set of steps, 13m high from the existing quay and stone steps. The project was extremely challenging due to its location and exposure to south-easterly waves and tidal range.
