Quay, Sea and Salt Cottages - Port-Eynon
As viewed from one of the windows of the Old Salt House.

The Old Salt House was used for the manufacture of salt by panning the sea water and extracting it via evaporation since early Elizabethan times.

The first Salt House was built in the reign of Henry VIII by David Lucas for his son John, who later fortified it and used it as a base for smuggling and piracy. In the late 17th century it was occupied by another John Lucas a descendant who made his living quarrying limestone and exporting stone to make paint. In the early years of the 18th century the Salt House was destroyed in a great storm.
