33-2021: Ha’penny Pier pontoons

27 October 2021

Harwich Haven Authority advise visiting sailors using the Ha’penny Pier pontoons, Harwich, that the facility will be unmanned from 1 November 2021 for the winter season. Our Pier Attendants will be back on duty at the beginning of April 2022.

Please note:

  • The gate accessing the pontoons will remain shut throughout the winter, for security reasons and following incidences of vandalism and unsocial behaviour.
  • Harwich Haven Authority gives priority usage of the Ha’penny Pier pontoons to local fishermen during the off season.
  • Sailors should note that if the bridges connecting the pontoons are raised… it is unsafe to enter the mooring facilities.
  • Ha’penny Pier and the pontoons are under 24 hour CCTV surveillance.
  • Please see our 2021 Yachting Guide, which contains safety of navigation information and all emergency contact details.

The Pier Attendants’ telephone will be manned between 0900 -1600 during the winter season – 07748 154039. Alternatively, email pier.master@hha.co.uk.
