    When are you planning to make the trip, how many of you and how long would you plan to be in the Walton area❓

    As said before, if you want to spend a night or so in the Walton Yacht Haven (The Pond) you will need to contact Bedwells to ensure the ‘cat flap’ will be open. A green flag is flown at the entrance to The Pond when the flap is open. To contact Bedwells ring 01255675873 during weekday working hours. If requested the cat flap will be opened at weekends.

    Foundry Reach from the Spit Cardinal Mark, at the top of the Walton Channel to the W&FYC is well buoyed and easy to follow. If you contact me when you plan to arrive, I will meet you at the Spit Buoy and lead you in.

    The main attractions of The Pond is the W&FYC and easy walking distance to Walton-on-the-Naze.

    This season The Pond is being up dated with more pontoons.

    Now understand that the RCC is heading up to the Walton Backwaters this weekend 25/6 May and plans to stopover in Titchmarsh Marina (high water around tea time)?

    But the tides aren’t good for getting in and out of The Pond.

    Best way to visit is to park the big boat for free on a buoy at the entrance to Foundry Reach (Southern End of the Walton Channel) and dinghy to the W&FYC - access a few beers either-side of high water - nice little adventure. ✔️

    Although RCC members enjoy their own supply of cheap fuel, Titchmarsh has the cheapest fuel in the area, especially if bunkering more than 250 litres.

    The Harbour Lights has a loyalty card scheme for regular visitors that also works in the restaurant at Woolverstone and the Compasses pub in Holbrook.

    Why would anyone want to eat at a place that has 3 star ratings out of five and 25 of 26 restaurants in Walton on Trip Adviser? There are far better places to eat and enjoy in town if you make the effort in my opinion. Just take a look at the reviews. The Ship in Kirby is a great restaurant with good food and friendly staff.

    I think the HL is basic but there are occasions when people want to eat where their boat is and HL serves that purpose adequately if no more.
    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere

    Thats why i recommended Pearl of Samui, a brisk walk up the road and great food. I agree HL is like MacDonalds with Carpet.

    This is very helpful - I had no idea ‘The Pond’ existed and had assumed that the yacht club moorings dried when previously visiting Titchmarsh. We recently moved the boat down from the Broads to Woolverstone and will be pottering around over the next week so may well pay a visit - tides and access permitting.
