9/166 Martin's Cove Fish Cellars

30.1.86 II

Fish cellars. Probably C18, possibly with some earlier fabric, remodelled probably in C19. Local red volcanic stone rubble brought to course. Corrugated iron hipped and gabled roofs. What survives of the circa C18 building are 2 larger rectangular walled enclosures, on the foreshore with a gap in the front wall at the centre. The right north east section is now roofless. The left south west part has raised or rebuilt upper section of the walls and is covered in a corrugated iron roof hipped at left south west end and half-hipped at right north east end. The entire left end of the left (south) section may have been rebuilt in C19 and the south west end separately roofed at right angles to the main range with gable ended roof. The early windows are in small square openings high in the front wall. Set back between the two sections and attached to the north end of the south section is a short one bay gable-ended block with a square window on first and second floors. The building is situated on the foreshore rocks and the building stone was probably quaried from the bedrock of the foreshore which has consequently been cut away in front of the building to form a pool at high tide and a slipway at low tide. It is an interesting building associated with the pilchard industry and situated on a fine stretch of coast overlooking the entrance to Plymouth Sound. It is said to be depicted on an ordinance map of 1738, PRO: MP, HH 129, 25789.
