Oct 2017 - Cill has been removed
Written by julianc | 11th Oct 2017
As of October 2017 the western half of the cill has been dismantled and is sitting on the harbour wall.

At low water the harbour now dries to hard sand.

We couldn't establish if this is winter maintenance or if the harbour is now out of action.

There are a few dozen boats on the pontoons. They have all taken the ground apparently without problem

Ed note. The equipment sitting on the harbour wall is the elements of the storm gate and nothing to do with the cill.
