Quays + slipways survive on the creek foreshore. The side walling of the on the slips exhibits a drystone base above which lime mortar has been employed, possibly indicating several phases of construction. Reclamation during this century is suggested by the small quays constructed of concrete blocks, the latter also being used to form the top of the quay immediately e of the main mill building (ea).
