Half rectangular wood post structure visible just below high water-mark. Posts stand upto 1.3m high (S1), are very close together (or adjoin) and are up to circa 12cm in diameter. Extend E-W for circa 50m(?) then gap (where tidal stream) and extend for further 30-40m(?).
Also semi-circular structures to south - see STU 038.
Re-visited as part of rapid coastal survey, 2002 - Remains of E-W bank consisting of earth mound with ditch behind. Where more eroded, line of bank visible as revetting posts, obviously added later in failed attempt to strengthen defence. Foreshore also rich in chalk rubble either from original bank or patching episodes. S2
