The Creel Loaders

Gardner Molloy, a celebrated sculptor from Port Seton, will start work shortly on The Creel Loaders.  The piece will sit in a paved garden in Victoria St and guide visitors to the Harbours.

The Dunbar Harbour Gateway project has been funded by Viridor Credits and a private, local benefactor.  The work is programmed for completion in the summer of 2015.

Victoria Street Lobster

A Regeneration Project

The Dunbar Shore and Harbour Neighbourhood Group (DSHNG) is committed to trying to improve the publically accessible areas of the East Beach and Dunbar’s harbours. During our annual estate inspection in 2013, we identified a small piece of land at Cromwell Harbour, closely adjacent to McArthur’s Stores, which had become overgrown and untended.

Upon enquiry, it appeared that this land is owned neither by East Lothian Council nor by adjoining house or business owners. It is a patch that is used as a dog toilet.

After discussion with Dunbar Harbour Trust, some of the local fishermen and Barry Buglass (whose shellfish premises abut the site), it was agreed that it would be preferable for this patch of land to be paved over. DSHNG would like to see this patch paved in high quality but very low maintenance materials to match the existing paths which have been laid in Caithness slabs with granite margins.

The group would, in addition, very much like to add a small street art work and would like to see a lobster carved into one of the paving stones. We think this would add to people’s pleasure as they use and visit the harbour and the lobster is an appropriate reminder of the business carried out on a daily basis in this place. We want to make people smile!

ELC have now given us funding and a lobster is on the way, set in cobbles from the Victoria Harbour.
