Fresh food at Titchmarsh Marina
Written by Bryant | 21st Aug 2017
The chandlery at Titchmarsh Marina Walton has a service where one can order fresh bread, pastries, eggs, bacon, filled rolls, milk etc from the local bakery either via a form in the chandlery or by phone (01255 676411/mob 07738 279642). One then can pick up the goods at a time that suits you.

Regards

UP DATE MARCH 2017
Written by Don Thomson | 28th Mar 2017
These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2017. We note that prices here have remained static since 201. Apart from that, and the fact that Titmarsh Marina no longer does bike hire, we have made no changes. The Walton Sailing Club web site is down but that may only be temporary.
Local Navigation Info
Written by Bryant | 7th May 2015
"Some additional info for The Walton Backwaters (East Cost). The Walton & Frinton Yacht Club has various pages dedicated to local navigation in the area, with the most problematic area, Stone Point, being updated by not only the WFYC, but Titchmarsh Marina and Harwich Haven Authority. All this can be found at wfyc.co.uk under 'Local Navigation'. Please use as you see fit.

Regards

Pete"

There is a very useful tide height gauge showing the depth of water over the sill, both entering and leaving. Simple, but excellent idea.
The pontoons do not have open cleats, but closed loops that lines have to be looped through. Take care when coming alongside and get someone ashore quickly to hold your boat as you cannot simply lasoo a cleat.
