Posts in the mud, Jenny Brown's Point
These four substantial posts lie just off the rocky shore but their original purpose isn't clear. At one time they may have been placed in saltmarsh turf and been part of the scheme to fool/hinder German invaders in World War II (possibly like these posts nearby LinkExternal link ). Alternatively, they could have been associated with the embankment LinkExternal link or the copper smelting chimney LinkExternal link. This is how they looked in May, 2008 LinkExternal link
