Watching Brief (1 February 2011 - 1 April 2011)

NT 136 783 A programme of archaeological work was undertaken 1 February–1 April 2011 to produce a photographic record of the proposed location of a new lifeboat station, on the Category B listed Hawes Pier, and to monitor groundworks associated with this development. Sandstone bedrock was encountered below a dump of loose sandstone rubble that formed the core of the pier. Bedrock varied in depth from 0.7m below the modern ground level to 2.07m at the N end of the development area.
