Full Description

A group of small pits are visible at this location. They vary in size and shape although most are roughly rectangular. The majority of the pits contain water and some appear to be interlinked by channels. They are located at the edge of the intertidal zone and may be related to shellfish production, possibly of a Post Medieval date. (S1) (S2)
