Hi all ,we were out on the boat today and noticed that the whole length of the public moorings in Fleet Dyke are closed with hundreds of iron piles laid out waiting to be driven in to the bank.By the looks of things this will take a good few weeks so if you plan to use this mooring check first.Also a stretch of St Bennets is also being worked on and partly closed,so moorings in the area are going to be tight at the start of the season. Smile

See you down the river,
Roy and Diane

I'm sure I've read somewhere that Packman reckons these are going to be ready for Easter?

Hi Trevor,Where have we heard that before?I would say that looks a bit optimistic.as the metal is laid on the bank,and no work seems to have started yet! Confused

We were down there tuesday, it looks like they are dredging fleet dyke at the moment and dropping the mud/silt at St Bennets. Loads of pilings at the moorings for flood defence works more taken down as we left.

To be fair those moorings are being worked on by BESL and not the BA directly. Both are part of the Flood Alleviation works being done and I don't think that JP has any involvement. The work that is being done throughout Broadland is massive and ultimately this will improve what was becoming a poor mooring and realistically the work, which is going on throughout the year, cannot fit in all the time with the season.
Now whether the work being done will be effective is a whole new topic..... Question

The work on fleet dyke is not a BA mooring, the st benets is and will be done in 3 stages the fisrt 100mt is hoped to be completed by Easter.
At the moment we are playing catch up, tree clearing due to high winds in January has taken longer than expected, so we are about 3 weeks behind schedule.

Hi Just a quick update on the work.We moor next to the moorings and  can see ( and hear ) the progess .Today Wednesday the piling is doing very well and the laid out piles have now moved from the bank at the broad end of the mooring and today there was three or four boats moored on this stretch.  As Kim said they should be ready for May,lets hope so! Playful Wink

See you down the river,

Easter Wekend and the work on the banks of Fleet Dyke are going well.The half way bend has  been re piled but not available at present.The moorings higher up are also well on track and there is still limited moorings available.If you have a dinghy you can drop a weight in the broad and use the marked landing area on the left, just past the boatyard ,then the new house being built on the left hand side of the Broad.The lane will take you to the Village,The Ship Pub, Post office,Chinese resturant,and Fairhaven Trust .

See you down the river,
Roy and Diane
