Old jetty off Mucking tip
Old jetty off Mucking tip
A mysterious structure, along with a lesser one further north. They do not appear on any maps yet found. Just inland in each case are a pair of small square buildings or similar, which are mapped, although walking along the foreshore I missed them. There is no indication that any of these structures were associated with gravel workings inland or the rubbish tipping that started slightly later. The first had a tramway to Stanford Wharf, the second a wharf, still in use, some way to the north. So military in origin?
