Full Description

January 1995: Owner of beach huts (& land at Wrabness point, Essex) reported line of stakes believed to be remains of fish trap in triangular area beside Shallager Creek at approx NGR, to Dave Strachen. Apparently this site well known locally (S1). Needs checking locally and on APs at low tide.
It is possible that the remains described above could actually relate to a wooden fish trap located to the north (STU 067). (S2)
