April 1890: Remains of timber boarded and tied well/pit/feature revealed by cliff fall. Similar to COV Misc (CRN 08850) and EBV Misc. Also quantities of broken pottery "situated under, or very nearly under the extremity of the road which ends there abruptly at the edge of the cliff". "the beach is said to have been strewed with it" (pottery). Author gives theory of boundary shafts and dates as Rom (S1).
More probably Med in light of finds since (JCO ? 1976)(S2). and see COV 005. Grid reference after OS (S3).
1988: Site now totally destroyed by continued cliff erosion. Also listed as Rom.
