Works From 17th January On The Electric Posts At Rockland St Mary


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

Works will commence on Monday 17 January for approximately three days to install an electric charging pillar at the western end of the Rockland St Mary 24-hour moorings.

 

The site will remain open, although the slipway run by the Poors Trust will be closed for the duration of the work. There may be occasions during this period when the electric supply from the existing pillar on the Rockland eastern moorings needs to be temporarily turned off to allow the new pillar to be connected. Please follow any signage present.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused whilst these improvement works are taking place.

 

Best

 

Tom

That’s good news! Though I must admit that we haven’t yet moored at Rockland on Moonlight Shadow, though we did as hirers. It’s so close to Brundall that the temptation is to just go back to our home mooring. I think we will moor there in future though. We moored at Bramerton for the last night of our November break and being on an ‘away’ mooring instead of going back to Brooms for our final night did feel like we were prolonging the holiday.

It's one of our favourite spots and the walks are great as you can head off towards the dyke and main river or turn right on the road and head into the village where there is a well stocked shop with post office counter.

As for the New Inn across the road, we have always found it extremely welcoming with great food 

So more electric posts is a great addition to the mooring as the Eastern side would fill up quickly at peak times

I do not think that they are fitting additional posts, the way I read it they are replacing the current post.

This seems very ambiguous, as the existing post is on the South side of the basin. It would be more informative if it referred to 'The Side of the basin' rather than an end. An end to which side? I hope it's to the West side.

the notice does say that there may be times the existing pillar may be cut off to allow the new pillar to be connected, this reads to me that they are adding an additional pillar. or they would surely have said .replaced

I too read it as an additional pillar. Looking at the map the current one is definitely located south. Also the communication does say ‘install an electric charging pillar’. Surely if they were just working on the existing one it would be worded differently?

Cross fingers it is an extra one!

An electric pillar on the other mooring area would come in handy.
