Cruised up Fleet dyke today and saw the work they are doing on the left bank.

It does look very bleak at the moment and sadly the nice 'wild' moorings have disappeared.  No doubt the reeds will grow up as they have at the Thurne mouth.

I can remember seeing the same farther down some years ago.

Yes about 6 - 9 months and should be back to normally just hope they put some quay headings in as well.

At least they've had the good sense to do this work at the end of the season rather than at the beginning of it like they did a few years ago. By the time the holiday season arrives next year, things should look much more like normal. Smile

It has been nice to be able to sail down there recently -
Does look a bit sparse in that picture though, and not a
lot of shelter!

"just hope they put some quay headings in as well"

Unlikely Paul, the principle of "Setback" is to not give the wash of passing boats anything to bounce off.

The reeds will grow and completely cover the banks again very quickly, as they have up the Ant, but many casual moorings will be/have been lost. Frown

Interesting that as some of the information on the PDF was showing "bank erosion".
Due to no quay heading ???

Just wondering as if you look at the Ant, where there is quays then there is less erosion than where there isnt !


Banks being wash away, roots on the bank being exposed at water level and trees falling over due to loss of banking.

I remember when they dredged it in the eighties )1980s' before you all start) they just built the bank up with the spoil, it was bare for a while but not long. We found some lovely bottles and clay pipes, I actually found a whole one.
