Type and Period (1)
Small linear pits or trenches of unknown date and function aligned along the western side of the sea bank (HLY 047). The greatest extent of these pits is visible in 1940 and 1941 (S1) (S2) and they are still visible in 1971, although many have been eroded by the sea and others appear to have silted up by that date. (S3) They may be extraction pits, perhaps for clay, although their position directly behind the sea defence bank (HLY 047), on the saltmarsh, must be considered when trying to determine their function.
See HLY 040 for another area of pits at the other side of Barthorp's Creek.
