Harbour Piers and Quays including Inner Basin, Charleston Port, St. Austell Bay - Cornwall (UA)

Charlestown Port is a late Georgian working port dating back to the C18 and located approximately one mile from St Austell on the south coast of Cornwall. It consists of an inner harbour with two flanking piers projecting out to sea, the larger on to the west. A modern steel lockgate then connects to the long thin dock running inland. The west pier wall has blown masonry blocks and the east pier wall has tidally undermined wall lengths. Clay shute has been taken down due to condition and potential danger to visitors.
