Southdown Quays

II

Quays forming two basins. C18. Slatestone rubble, in pitched and horizontal bands, with granite copings; granite ashlar. The quays have battered walls, square-headed jetty to east has flight of granite steps in centre of head and flight of granite steps to south west side. This jetty forms the outer wall to the roughly rectangular basin to east. The second basin to the west is narrower, and has the west wall in slatestone rubble, the north and east walls in granite ashlar.

These quays were used for transporting bricks from the Southdown brickworks; there were formerly brick kilns and quarries to the north west and trackways for waggons to load the bricks. Part of the area adjacent to the quays is cobbled.

This area was first used c 1650, when there was a gunpowder works, probably associated with Plymouth dockyards. There were varied industrial uses of the site subsequently.
