Slipway or Inner Harbour

Slipway or Inner Harbour.
The sea wall makes a turn to the south to form a small slipway or inner harbour. Here a corner of the stone construction is shown after several courses of rocks have been added to the original remains to bring it above the level of high tide. The posts were placed in the post holes from which the remains of the original posts were removed.
