These two innocent looking slipways in Torquay harbour have caught a lot of media attention over past few years.

It was from here 1000s of British & American soldiers departed for the D Day assult in Normandy in June 1944. Torbay council want to demolish them & re-develop the waterfront, English Heritage have listed the slipways as grade II, to try to protect them as historical monuments. The debate rages on.............
