St Martin’s Quay To Get Wooden Fenders

Higher Town Quay, St Martin's

The Quay at higher town on St Martin’s is to be protected with hardwood fenders.

Two years ago, an unknown vessel collided with Bryher’s Church Quay and the damage to steps made its use precarious.

Duchy Harbourmaster Dale Clark wanted to ensure it didn’t happen again and after consultation with boatmen and Lyonesse Lady Crew, fenders were added.

But recently St Martin’s Quay sustained similar damage and the decision has been taken to add the wooden protection there too.

Dale says the work is due to start this week although the weather may delay this slightly.
