Remains of Sills from the Bridge Over the Defensive Ditch

Remains of Sills from the Bridge Over the Defensive Ditch.
This image shows the sills remaining from a bridge that crossed the defensive ditch and led from the village to the Ferryland Downs to the east. To the right can be seen the location of the east gate to Avalon and the east end of the cobble pavement that seems to run through the entire settlement.
