Below: The vessel “LAGIK” stranded at Port Sutton Bridge at the turn of the tide on Wednesday 13th December, 2000. She broke her back when the tide went out and blocked the river for many weeks. There was concern that should there be an extra high tide, or storms , the village would be flooded.

Below: Heavy lifting and cutting equipment was shipped in from the continent, and the “LAGIK” was gradually dismantled and shipped out. The incident attracted many visitors to Sutton Bridge. The Port reopened about 9 weeks later.

Above and below: Three new vessels can be seen moored at Port Sutton Bridge. Porth Dafarch,  Porth Cadlan and Rhoscolyn Head. They are three high speed catamarans that transfer personnel and equipment from the port into the Wash to the wind farms being erected out there. Each catamaran is able to carry up to 12 passengers for 60 miles. They belong to turbine Transfers Ltd, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holyhead Towing Ltd, of Anglesey. The photographs show the vessels moored at Port Sutton Bridge at low water on Sunday morning, February 19th, 2012.
