Sluicing returns

New sluice gates have been fitted to Carnsew Basin in Hayle as part of the plans to resume a sluicing regime, part of the South Quay development by ING.

The sluice pools and sluice gates in Hayle traditionally played a major part in deepening and straightening the navigation channel from the bay into the port of Hayle, and maintained that depth to allow bigger ships and more commerce for the port. This in turn increased the success and wealth of the rival Cornish Copper Company and Harveys of Hayle, which led to greater investment and development of technology and business which helped Hayle play its part in the Industrial Revolution.  read more »
