    Default Ha’penny Pier

    The missing section of pontoon is now back in place.

    But the whole thing is still closed because of storm damage

    I think they are still putting it back together, looking at the Webcams you can see guys working on it.

    I may have raised our hopes too soon. The missing pontoon is back but now the ramp down to the pontoons appears to be out of position and just laying on the pontoon. If you look here and select the "ha'penny pier right" camera you will see the ramp/walkway horizontal on the pontoon.

    Looking at the webcams I can see quite a number of fishing boats and the Harbour Ferry alongside, it must be accessible to some degree, but maybe not for the “General public” ?

    There are now yacht and a motorboat alongside, so I guess access must be possible, although the ramp still Appears to be lying on the pontoon.
    Watch this space I guess.

    Whilst the pontoons are in place, I don't believe there will be access up the ramp until early April, I am a skipper on the Harbour ferry, and we are having to look at an alternative pick up point in Harwich as the service is due to start as from 1 April, and the latest completion date we have is around 3/4 April. Hopefully they can get it sorted earlier.....

    Many thanks for that. I do hope you get them to complete the ramp in time for the start of your excellent ferry service.
