Harbour View Seat)
Seat. C18. Sandstone rubble, rendered rear wall. Rectangular building with open
front facing north, giving a view over Plymouth Sound. Possibly formerly had roof
over. Rear wall and side walls with plaster moulded cornice to side walls. Rear
wall rendered. 2 granite steps lead up to the platform, with sockets along top
step, possibly formerly had rails to piers along front. About 5 metres wide. Rev.
Shaw, in Early Tours of Devon and Cornwall, 1788: "Descending now the common walk to
the house we came to the White alcove on the drywalks (so called) which fronts full
north, and gives a beautiful perspective up the harbour...". The White Seat may
originally have been painted white.
