A probable rectangular structure, approximately 3 by 2.5 metres in size and probably roofless, is indistinctly visible on Haldon Pier on aerial photographs taken in 1946. It is still extant the following year, but has since been removed. It is not depicted on any of the available mapping and may be a temporary structure of Second World War date.
