Just been up to Horsey and spotted this sign announcing the closure of Horsey Staithe 2 September - 23 November 2018.

Work commences on Monday morning with the dyke being netted to remove fish before it is dammed either side of the works area and that section drained to allow access. This is to repair/replace a drainage culvert that runs under the dyke and has been on the cards for some time but it looks as though all the stars have now aligned!

Local boats are all moved out onto temporary pontoons just outside the dyke.

I was at Horsey last weekend, and there are several signs around the staithe area explaining what is going on.  At least one of them seemed to say that the temporary pontoon moorings that extend out into the Mere are for the boats normally moored in the dyke as well as visiting vessels.

However, on the end of the pontoon, there was a sign that said 'Private Moorings', which would indicate to me if I were arriving by water that I should not moor there  -  thus not leaving anywhere to tie up where you could access the land.

It would also be a lot easier when the permanent moorers go back, if all the 'Private' moorings were on the same side of the dyke, but that's a separate issue.

On leaving the dyke yesterday I took the attached which shows the temporary pontoons that have been put in place. On investigation, I have also been told that visiting boats will be able to moor stern on but I'm not sure where given the occupancy of said pontoons!

Does this mean that once they have played with their drains Horsey Staithe will have nice new piling along both banks?  Or is that a forlorn hope?

P.S. I wonder how many mudweights they will find Playful

Bill,
I understand that only the affected section is being drained and would therefore presume that only that section will be re-piled.

When we were down there on Friday a stiff westerly was blowing across the broad and the temporary pontoon was fair shifting around it would have been a rough night moored stern on .  I did notice some boats still on the broad end of the dyke and looks like you can only access on the car park side.

In a nutshell
The Moore the merrier.
