A pipe supported within at least eight concrete blocks is visible running from the south-eastern side of the Marine Spa on aerial photographs taken in 1928. The Marine Spa has the sign ‘Medical Turkish and Swimming Baths’ painted on to the side and the pipe is likely to have discharged water from the baths into the sea. The concrete blocks are visible on aerial photographs taken in the 1940s, but not on later available aerial photographs, although some remains may survive within the sand. It is recorded to avoid possible confusion with Second World War structures.
