Lynmouth

I was thinking of taking a trip from Avonmouth to Lynmouth next w/w 25thNov.

It will be right in the middle of Spring Tides with a 14Meter tide at Avonmouth. What is Lynmouth like to get into at Low tide, looking at the chart information there appears to be a channel that is marked by pilings. Is it navigable at all states of tide. It is likely we will be needing to leave Lynmouth at 2ish which is right at Low tide to make it back for the first Lock back into Bristol Marina.

From memory, Lynmouth at low tide is a pig. I wouldn't guarantee much in the way of water unless the little stream coming from the hills is in flood!

Minehead's much the same, but you might have a better chance. Watchet dries unless you're locked in.

Try giving Lynmouth Harbour Master a ring, failing that ask at Ilfracombe as they'll know.

My memory of Lynmouth at low water is a dry very rocky beach and it gets some surf too. Not been there by sea for a few years though sosomebody may know different .
You could always go a bit furthar to Ilfracombe harbour if you can't get in there.

I was in Lynmouth in October and at low water there was only an ankle deep stream. It is definitely not accessible at all states.

I've attached a pic where you can see the harbour entrance is completely dry, the channel beyond it is ankle deep and extends seawards quite some way.

It's a nightmare at the best of times, the wooden pilings marking the channel are pretty much rotten and you really have to look out for them, well worth it when you get in though, a great town and be sure to visit Lynton and watersmeet.

Thanks guys, in view of the tides and potentially the weather we are going to Launch at Cardiff and head over to Watchett for lunch instead.
