West Bay Harbour, calm after the storms
West Bay Harbour, calm after the storms
All is quiet after the prolonged period of south westerly gales since Christmas. The harbour defences and changed orientation of the west pier stood up well to the onslaught with only minor flooding at the Spring Tides and justified the money spent.
The main building on the quayside is Pier Terrace, built in 1884/5 and Grade 2 listed, while the pink building on the seaward side to the right is another listed building,Ship Cottage.
