World War One Audit of Surviving Remains (1 August 2013)

The east pier or Admiralty Pier is marked on a map of the naval base (held in a private collection) during the First World War and was the deepwater pier. The pier strikes out SSE for about 230m, with two eastward and one westward extension, most of which were served by railway lines.

The pier also carried pipes for oil and water.

Activities

Project (March 2013 - September 2013)

A project to characterise the quantity and quality of the Scottish resource of known surviving remains of the First World War. Carried out in partnership between Historic Scotland and RCAHMS.

Note (26 August 2015)

The pier which was constructed from wooden piles was replaced in the early 1950's by the existing concrete piles. The disused narrow NW jetty is still of wooden construction and may been a remaining section of the original pier dating back to the First World War.

Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 26 August 2015.
