Remains of a jetty
Remains of a jetty
The jetty is first shown, although apparently incomplete, on OS maps from 1914; it is depicted to its full length from 1918.

After reaching the grassy area at the top of the beach, its course can, on satellite imagery, be followed in the same direction for another 200 metres, in the form of a path across the grass; that area is indicated on the old maps as "saltings". The path will have continued further, but the creation of a golf course has obliterated its remains.

See NS4473 : Remains of a jetty for a view in the opposite direction along the same ruined jetty.

Faint traces of an even earlier jetty can be seen on this beach, about 200 metres to the east: NS4473 : Remains of a jetty.
