|Hythe Quay at Maldon as it looked last weekend after the initial movement|
|The Hythe yesterday (Sat) after the tidal surge|
Lets hope any more of the quay doesn't suffer the same fate and that something can be done about the Hythe sooner rather than later.
At the moment the visitors pontoon is not affected and although a boat drawing as much as six feet or more could reach right up to Fullbridge, from my observations and without physically sounding the depth with my trusty cane, that same craft would not be able to visit here as a lot of silt has built near it barring access to deeper draft vessels who otherwise might like to come alongside.
PS: On a positive note if you get a chance do visit the Hythe as sailing barge Hydrogen is open as a cafe barge throughout the winter months. Tea or coffee with home made cakes etc are now available onboard in this unique setting.
Good sailing, TS
