After many years of the idea being proposed by Wivenhoe Town Council, Colchester Borough Council provided a grant of almost 11,000 to pay the cost of a new shelter on The Quay.

The Town Council worked with Tim Snow, an architect living in Wivenhoe when the project was started, to design a replacement shelter. After planning approval was obtained, there was a further delay in finding a builder to undertake the work within the budget allowed.

Eventually work commenced early in 2002, and a plaque was unveiled in October 2002 to record its official opening and the financial contribution from Colchester Borough Council.
