The lines encrusted in seaweed are concrete ramps at Sand Quay, Saltash. During World War 2 they were used for repair of U.S. landing craft in preparation for the D-Day landings. The site is now a registered monument. This view is looking down the River Tamar, where the Saltash Road Bridge and Brunel's Royal Albert Railway Bridge can be clearly seen.
