Historic tide gauge information: The gauge installed in 1988 was levelled by an external company and was later found to be .2m out. Following this a temporary gauge was fitted with the datum being based on the previous value until the new gauge with 3 sensors fitted in 2001.

There were problems with the gauge throughout 2014. During Jan-Apr readings were in the order of 20-30mm high while in July and August HWs appeared low. From September onwards it was suspected that the gauge was blocking. TGI were at site on four separate occasions. No levelling was carried out during 2014.
