(West end, off)

20/15 Old harbour wall


Harbour wall, probably C18. Large squared stone with coping of large irregular
slabs. Wall 0.8 metre high runs west from Garden Terrace then turns north
alongside tidal flats; this section 1.8 metres high externally and 0.8 metre
internally. Final section turns westwards and then north again, and has
rebuilt upper part with gabled coping, ending in rough ramp-down. Overall
length 250 metres.

Included for historic interest as Alnmouth was an important corn port in the
C18; the harbour became silted up after a flood in 1806 when the Aln changed
its course.
