Standing Building Recording (12 December 2017 - 8 May 2018)

NB 98988 07364 A programme of building survey was undertaken, 12 December 2017 – 8 May 2018, of the ruined herring station. The work consisted of the recording of elevations and plans for the herring station complex and ancillary structures. The structure was in use as a curing facility between the late 18th and early 19th century, thereafter subject to piecemeal re-use, prior to progressive episodes of abandonment into the mid-20th century.

A drawn, written and photographic record was produced for the building complex and its immediate surrounds, including a graveyard to the NW. The metric survey was facilitated by laser scanning and photogrammetric recording.
