Introduction

There were 3 sheds on the shore by the Big Rock (official name: Sea Craig). The largest, a boat house, was furthest north, right beside the Big Rock, shown on 1895 and 1914 Ordnance Survey maps. The southernmost shed was 67 metres south of the boat shed, was smaller and had a slip, but this is more likely to have been a bathing shelter. This is shown only on the 1914 map. In between was the smallest shelter, right on the beach, no slipway, used as a bathing shelter. This is shown on the 1914 map close to the large boat house, but on the 1895 map it is shown midway between the two locations with slipways.
