Laurence Oliver (l-moliver@virginmedia.com)

we have relations over from Australia who wanted to visit Cornwall and in particular polperro, the harbour is still as beautiful as it always has been, we had a great day until we visited the heritage museum cafe, my relations wanted to try a real Cornish paste, the service and attitude of the two lady''s in the cafe was appalling and the service left a lot to be desired, other people we spoke to were also disgusted, they have a prime position and a captive audience with the tourists but seem to make no effort to change their attitude and their manners, it''s being run like a truckers water hole, we were absolutely ashamed to show our Australian relations that this is how we treat our tourists, it needs a good clean up and there service attitude and manner changed, people would cut their right arm off for this little business, incidentally we had no complaint about the Cornish paste it was delicious, I hope someone takes notice of this and speaks to these people about changing their ways.

I''m curious to know how many of the ports etc shown in this website have effective, 24 hour security, to prevent the entry of illegal immigrants, terrorists, weapons, explosives, drugs etc, into Britain? The same applies to the coastline in between them. Comments welcome.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy the many happy hours I spend at Lydney Harbour. I live in a city centre area and to visit such a charming place means a great deal to me. The radar key facility is wonderful otherwise I would not be able to visit. I am looking forward to spending many more happy Thursday afternoons at Lydney watching the tides . Thank You

Liam Hargreaves (poundtory5@hotmail.co.uk)

I am just writing to inform you of an error on the port directory on your very interesting and informative website ports.org.uk. My query is that Birkenhead is registered as it''s own port , however it''s actually part of the port of Liverpool which also includes docklands in Bootle, Seaforth and Wallasey and hope you consider revising this information. I have attached an official map for the port as produced by Peel Ports demonstrating this information.

Other than that, this is a very fascinating and well informed directory and just hope this minor error is ironed out.

Kind regards,

Liam Hargreaves

Fantastic site and a very useful planning tool. I am planning to circumnavigate the UK in a small motor boat later this month. I will be filming all the ports I call into and taking pictures should you require any new pictures please let me know and I will forward them on.

Kind Regards

Re Kinlochleven.
since the decision to end Aluminium smelting at Kinlochleven, well over £20m has been spent in providing a new economy for the village and in the 12 years since closure I think,rather than devastated, the community is now more resilient and more in charge of its destiny than at any stage in its history.

Visited on the 22 Nd May with my wife with

visitors the history.

Thanks...Ian

A very interesting site. Finding a place to moor a boat in the south of England tends to be difficult and expensive as invariably the squirearchy will have claimed everything.
