|At the bottom of the
High Street is Quay Hill a cobbled stone street that leads down
to Lymington Town Quay.
In bygone days Lymington Quay was a busy
commercial port exporting great quantities of salt to
importing coal for the salt industry, rum from the West Indies
and timber from Norway for shipbuilding. Today about 12 commercial
fishing boats operate out of the Quay, and there are around
100 berths for visiting boats.
Rowing Club is situated
close to the quay; it is a common site to see
them launch their boats on the slipway. The Puffin
ferry operates from the
quay with a ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of
Wight and other cruises.
