Sutton Harbour walkway to reopen this afternoon

Good news – the temporary walkway over the Sutton Harbour lock will be open again from today (Friday).

The repairs are complete and we’ve updated the timetable to let people know the best time to cross.

It does depend on tides and how much marine traffic is going through the lock, so there may be a wait, but to help you plan your journey, here’s when the walkway is open:

  • Friday 17 August                      1pm to 8pm
  • Saturday 18 August                  2pm to 9pm
  • Sunday 19 August                    2pm to 9pm
  • Monday 20 August                    not open
  • Tuesday 21 August                 8am to 1pm
  • Wednesday 22 August            8am to 2pm
  • Thursday 23 August                8am to 2.30pm

Don’t forget there is the Starfish Trail around Sutton Harbour and a short ferry ride across the harbour is another way to get across.
