The site at New Quay shown on the 1858 map may represent a yard as opposed to a building. The 1867 map showed a roofed building & the 1884 map showed two warehouse buildings at Site 16. A small dock was built at Site 16.1 in 1781 which appeared to have been filled in by 1832. The survey in 2006 found the walls of the buildings up to 3 meters high with 1.6 meter wide openings onto the river quay & similar openings facing east. The southern building had round masonry buttresses along the south wall & two window openings. Other details: Figs 2, 7-8.
