Full description

1997 - 1998.
Freestanding ruined wall of flint and mortar. Despite local legends of an earlier origin, listed (S1) in 2003 as an early 17th century quay wall, shown on (S2) (though by this date, 1649, the water to the north had been replaced by marshes). Reproductions of the map however may be misleading.
