Greetings Keith :)

I arrived here via the pic on your front page "Well Held"..I can see from this shot that the pier/jetty forms part of the navigable boundaries for shipping..Obviously, it's a good mark for local anglers but I wonder what it's original purpose was?

Cheers

Jim

Between the upright timbers are a lot of huge rocks, so I am guessing it was built mainly as a huge groyne to protect the river from silting caused by shifting sand.
