There are tracks out of sight on the left, some hidden by shrubbery and others sitting in mud. The curve to the right leads to the jetty. Photograph dated 3rd September 2013.
 
 
The ferro-concrete jetty and its two dockside travelling cranes. The disturbances in the mud appear to be the remains of a boat or small ship, presumably one that was dismantled here. Photograph dated 3rd September 2013.
 

 The line leading onto the jetty. Beyond the curve it split into to and ran under the two cranes to two adjacent buffer stops at the far end of the jetty. Photograph dated 3rd September 2013.
