North East/West slip (all tide stages)

Hello all.
I just moved to Manchester, and now I looking for slipway somewhere in north east or west which is usable at any time of the tide.
In the past I used a Baiter slip in Poole (Dorset) and always it was pleasure to do so. Never had any problems at low or high tides.
Wondering perhaps we have something similar there in the north? I would be extremely appreciated if someone would share info about places where it is possible to launch without problems at any time.
Thanks, M.

Chris Seddon at Ty Calch would be my first choice, given your location. Whitby would be my second choice. Iíd avoid both a couple of hours either side of LW.

Red car off the beach hard sand into what they call the harbour between the scars, Whitby 3 hours either side of HW depends on if they had a good winter flood down the river to clear silt from the end of the slip which drops off and gives you a bit longer. Dunbar not sure but think it's 3 hours either side of HW same st abbs

Hartlepool marina is mostly any state of tide but the entrance to the slip would be tight for anything bigger than 6 meters .exit from the marina to the sea is via a lock and they wont open an hour either side of lw. Hartlepool yacht club is where i launch from they have there own slip useable from an hour and a half either side of low water. you have to be a member

Thereís a slip at Amble, never used it, but itís on my list of things to explore. We used the slip at South Sheilds a long time ago to dive the Oslofjord, that was ok iirc.

used Amble many years ago when freddie the dolphin was around there, there's a decent marina so might be better now
