What a port it is now. when I was there there was only one jetty not much more, I was in A troop 52 Squadron RCT 1975 -1979 at Marchwood and enjoyed most of the time even the round the clock off loading and loading.

I found this site while looking for information on the Isle of Stroma. My mother''s family came from Stroma and her Grandfather Malcolm Simpson (my Great Grandfather)and his brother Walter Simpson came down to London to make a new life. I believe they bother became City of London policemen!

Re: Cley next the Sea.
Cley was one of the Glaven Ports, whose history was described in a book by Mr. Hooton (?).
However, despite the silt and the difficult entry to Blakeney Harbour, many of us still enjoy messing about in boats.
Since 1994 I have been chair of the Cley Boat Club. We have moorings for our various craft in the River Glaven by Cley Mill. It''s a lovely unspoilt place, but the narrow river means only dinghies and small craft can reach there. But we wouldn''t change it for the world!!!

My great-great-great-great grandfather was apparently the first harbour master at Lowestoft.

I visited it recently from South Africa.

Great to find this website.

paul smith (p.smith.2007@btinternet.co)

Just had a nostalgic look at bp facility finnart. Brought back memories of about 1974. Woke up onboard Sylvania(norwegian tanker) from P.G. To find us tied up at finnart. Remember low mist on the hills. And suprising flower beds covering tanks. A most delightful venue after 6 weeks at sea. Never was or will be forgotten. Love to go back one day and have another look at excellence.

newhaven pp have closed the beach and arm so does not in any way provide leisure facilities,and its disregard for local anger at this is making it an extreemly unpopular company,so prehaps you could alter your description.

As Rispond is the ancestoral home of my Gr Grandfather, I am inthralled by the prospects of actually seeing in person, not only the home where he lived for many years, but the country as well.

Great site, having lived at the Kingholm Quay for several years and owning a small boat which was also moored at the Quay, i was surprised recently when i visited the Kingholm to see a few large boats there, nice to see it being used.
