Ashtorre Slipway – Temporary Closure.

Boulders put in place by Cornwall Council as a safety measure at a popular family location in Saltash will remain until after the Saltash Regatta in September.

Sand has been put in place by Saltash Regatta Committee at Ashtorre Slipway to provide a fun temporary ‘beach’ for families and children to enjoy.

As this means there is more activity on and around the slipway, especially by children, it is not safe for small craft to launch from there over the coming weeks.

Boulders have been put in place at the top of the slipway to stop the launching of small craft.  It has been agreed by Cornwall Council, the Saltash Regatta Committee and Saltash Town Council that the boulders will be removed after the Saltash Regatta which takes place on 3 and 4 September.  By then, much of the sand will have naturally washed away and the main school summer holiday will be coming to an end.

Those wishing to launch small craft are being directed to an alternative Cornwall Council Slipway, a short distance from Ashtorre Slipway, at Jubilee Green.
