Welcome to the Gloucester Harbour Trustees’ Website

The Gloucester Harbour Trustees are responsible for the safety of navigation in the Gloucester Harbour, an area of the Severn Estuary stretching from seaward of the Second Severn Crossing to the weirs at Maisemore and Llantony near Gloucester and the River Wye to Bigsweir Bridge.  GHT provides and maintains navigational aids to mark the main channel and provides a pilotage service which is compulsory for larger vessels.

GHT welcomes queries and comments from all those interested in the Gloucester Harbour and its activities.  Leisure users in particular are encouraged to explore this website and contact the office if they have any queries about navigating in the harbour area and beyond.
