Large Stone Warehouse

Large Stone Warehouse.
This large stone warehouse (within the white rectangle) measured about 56 feet by 16 feet (inside). The walls were of stone and the building was roofed with slate. The western end was paved with flagstones while the east end had a dirt floor. A small door on the south side was probably matched by a large loading door facing the harbour, where small ships and boats could be loaded and unloaded.
