Conwy Marina Notice to Mariners – Nov 2023

We are sad to report that storm Debi has disappointingly torn down our temporary sill gate control panel housing.

We are currently working hard to ensure the panel is kept watertight and weatherproof while another temporary housing can be built and fitted.

In the interest of everyone’s safety we have elected to suspend all sill gate operations and leave the sill gate buoyant until such a time as a satisfactory reinstallation of a new housing and test of the electrical equipment has been completed.

Further updates will be provided in due course and we thank you for your understanding and patience.

Oliver Dyble,
Assistant Manager,

Conwy Notice to Mariners 14/2023

All mariners are advised that the Beacons Pontoon is off station for repairs.  The access gantry is laid on the riverbed and accordingly mariners should not navigate within the Beacons piles due to the underwater obstruction.  A further notice will be issued once the pontoon is back on station.  The present downtime is estimated until March 2024 due to pile repairs.

A lit isolated danger mark has now been positioned in co-ordinates :- 53°17.64N 003°50.35W
