Listing Text

SW 5437-5537
10/104 South Quay, including south-east
- side of Carnsew Dock

Quay walls. Circa 1819. Built for Harvey and Company (Henry Harvey). Granite
and killas rubble, granite ashlar, copper slag blocks and granite dressings. Walls to 3 sides of a peninsular wharf, the long side facing north east and forming one side of a long narrow harbour. Walls are scalloped on plan
possibly to allow boats to lie alongside. The north west wall is also part
of Carnsew dock. This dock was designed so that accumulated silt could be
sluiced out at intervals by releasing a large volume of dammed-up water.
The walls are slightly battered and have dressed granite copings.
On December the 27th 1834 there was a ceremonial opening of the sluices when
the mine's adventurers and other customers and friends of the Company were invited to breakfast a The White Hart Hotel q.v.
