SV9010 HUGH TOWN
1358-0/8/39 The Pier
Quay and breakwater. Begun by Francis Godolphin soon after
1601, rebuilt 1740 and 1748; new pier extending north to Rat
Island built 1835-8 for Augustus Smith, Lord Proprietor of the
Islands; lengthened 1889 for the flower trade. Granite rubble
to earlier arm into harbour partly in vertically-coursed dry
stonewall technique, and shaped granite blockwork to later
arms. Breakwater has canted wall on sea side. Two granite
piers at south entrance and cast-iron upturned cannon reused
as bollards. The construction of a pier for the new harbour,
St. Mary's Port, was associated with the fortification of the
Hugh begun by Godolphin which included Star Castle and the
Garrison walls (q.v.).
