Description

Physical description: Remains of small wharf with steps down to water level. The adjoining site has been developed for flats but was probably a private jetty established in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century. In its present context it appears to be a popular local fishing spot and as such has continued to attract local residents to the water's edge.
