Full Description

Walls and circular pens down by the shore. Two parallel walls, the inner being of large boulders and the outer smaller boulders, probably more recent. Possible anti erosion barriers. There is a track at the tideline which was used to carry shingle for making tracks. There is a slipway now disused. No knowledge about the pens in recent history.
