TQ7178 : Ruins of the explosives works, near Lower Hope Point (3): an alignment of posts

Ruins of the explosives works, near Lower Hope Point (3): an alignment of posts
Ruins of the explosives works, near Lower Hope Point (3): an alignment of posts
The ruins of old explosives works (and I believe there was more than one such installation) occupy a fair stretch of land in this and neighbouring squares. Among the many puzzling features is this double line of posts. It looks to me as if each post was originally eight or nine feet high, of concrete with a central reinforcement. My guess is that the posts once supported some sort of conveyor system.

The ruins to be seen on the left are those at 'The Poplars' - see: TQ7178 : The old Point Gates Road and the Poplars, near Lower Hope Point, Cliffe Marshes. This sequence continues with: TQ7178 : Ruins of the explosives works, near Lower Hope Point (4)
