Head Hanger in place

Salcombe Harbour Head Hanger

As part of Salcombe Harbour’s continuing work to improve local water quality, the Harbour is handing out ‘Head* Hangers’ to visiting yachts, as a reminder of the local facilities and best practise.
The Salcombe Harbour – Kingsbridge estuary is a renowned quiet watersports designation and it is obviously very much in everyone’s interest to look after the water so that they can enjoy it downstream.

The Head Hanger has been funded as part of a South Devon Catchments Partnership local project. it is centred on the estuary’s and Slapton Ley’s water catchments.
* ‘heads’ are the nautical name given to a boat’s toilets, historically found at the head or bow of the sailing ship!
