Included for historical interest. Alnmouth imported guano (used as a
fertiliser) in the C18, which due to its smell was stored as far as possible
from the main harbour. Following the 1806 flood and the change of course of
the River Aln the former estuary silted up and the shed passed to its present
use as a barn.
