Fish Dock & Facilities, Appledore

Situated on an existing working dockside this new SWRDA-funded facility is intended to help in the long-term protection of North Devon's fishing industry.  The scheme was developed with close involvement of the local fishing community, and provides facilities for fish landing, processing, ice-making, re-fuelling, all designed to allow fast and efficient turn-around to cope with the tidal restrictions of the Torridge Estuary.

The building provides a public viewing point to encourage public awareness of the industry, and the building aesthetic reflects the function in its use of robust materials.  It achieves a BREEAM "Excellent" rating.
