Field Visit


A complex of drystone structure on and behind tidal flats. The ruins of a building, possibly a boat shed, measure 8 x 4m. This stands beside an inlet which has been used as a slipway, which extends c. 35m through the intertidal zone. The stone cleared from its floor has been piled up to either side. To the north side of the slipway, an angle of walling in the intertidal zone appears to form a small harbour, with a 10m long jetty of piled beach stone at its eastern end. Nearby, the ruins of a second building, 5 x 3.5m, lie close to the remains of a probable enclosure.
