at ilfracombe pier, anyone wish to join me lol?
This one????thats alright i have got a certain taste for them now as the last ones i caught i tried and really liked them.
lee was the barge there mate?.
When we were there on Thursday evening it was dredging the lower deck - pulling out tons of rock and debris from the old pier.its wasnt dredging, it was full of sand they shipped in form somewhere. they were just unloading it on the pier into trucks and carting it off to somewhere else.
hmm strange, may be it was just clearing the bottom so that it could moor up by the side of the pier, but yeah, what ever it was doing, thank god its gone.When we were there on Thursday evening it was dredging the lower deck - pulling out tons of rock and debris from the old pier.
Seriously?I was told that they were making the berth deeper for when the ferry service starts to Swansea.
they recon sometime in 2008. will be able to pop over to wales for the winter cod fishing then!Seriously?
I think that a ferry service to Swansea is a very long way off indeed.
Much more work is needed before any ferry would be able to dock at Ilfracombe. Unless it will be a very small one.
And if they are not going to change the pier to accommodate this new ferry then they will certainly ban fishing from it.
I might well join you down there tonight D/F need to get some bait firstly though.
