The pointed roof of NU2516 : Reconstructed Mesolithic round-house can be seen on the cliff top on the opposite side of the bay.

I have recently (April 2016) found a reference that indicates that the spring here is not so natural as an artesian borehole was put down by Farmer and Jones of Newcastle University in the 1960s to prove the geological succession along this part of the coastline. The water coming from the hole is said to be fresh, with a faint smell of rotten eggs.
