Craning of boats from their winter lay-up to the brook will occur during the afternoon of Saturday 16th April under the auspices of the Lympstone Fishery & Harbour Board.

A large crane will proceed via Nutwell Road, Burgmann’s Hill, The Strand, turning right to the harbour at The Swan Inn during the early afternoon and return after about 4 or 5 hours. The timing is new compared with recent cranings, to allow the arrival of the crane in daylight. Please contact the Harbour Board if you have any specific concerns. PO Box 5, Lympstone Post Office, harbour.board@btconnect.com.
