Crabbing on the Town Jetty is not permitted due to current Covid 19 Social Distancing measures. The Harbour in consultation with Brightlingsea town council decided that it would be impossible to control. The safety of all of our stakeholders must come first. The moment these measures are relaxed we will publish and once again welcome crabbers to the Jetty.
There are other areas which are available for Crabbing on the Prom, the boating lake and the paddling pool next to Batemans Tower signs directing crabbers are posted around the Harbour.
