Archaeology Notes

NS46NE 29.02 c. 49682 69411 to c. 49711 69551

This slipway is of historical significance as the place of construction of numerous vessels of exceptional size, including all three 'Queens'. The mouth of the River Cart (into the S bank of the river, opposite the slipway) facilitated the launching of such craft.
