Type and Period (2)
A Post Medieval or Modern landing point is represented by an access channel cut into the salt-marsh visible in the Deben Estuary at TM 29164218 on photographs taken from the 1940s onwards. The channel is 96m in length and allows access to solid ground from the main channel. (S1) (S2) The cut is visible on the Ordnance Survey 25" 2nd Edition map of circa 1904 with a quay marked at the narrow landward end. (S3) The feature is not marked on the 1st Edition map of circa 1884 suggesting it was constructed at the end of the 19th century. (S4)
