Too Much Sand Moved

As a result of the recent two weeks long removal of sand from Tenby harbour, there is a problem.

The change in the sand bed and, specifically, the sand bar outside the harbour area has produced an unexpected tidal rip on incoming tides. And this rip has pulled out a number of the harbour’s moorings.

A spokesman for Pembrokeshire County Council stated that the tractors and trailers will be back this morning to undo the damage. The spokesperson hoped that sufficient sand could be returned by the end of the week to stop further damage. The moorings will then be repaired, in time for the boats’ return to the water at the beginning of May.
