These piers form the Old Harbour and East Harbour. The oldest is the Old Pier
dating back in origin to the 2nd half of the C13 but in a ruinous state by
1565-66 when a large grant was made by Queen Elizabeth for its reconstruction,
later restorations as well: massive stone rubble with timber shearings, refaced
in parts. VINCENT'S PIER was built next soon after 1732 - also massive stone
rubble with timber shearings. This pier has the LIGHT HOUSE (qv). The EAST
PIER was built between circa 1790-1812 creating the East Harbour. Massive
stone blocks, set on curve, with sea wall. The WEST Pier was begun in 1817
as a southerly enclosing arm to the Old Harbour - similar massive stone blocks
to East Pier. Late C19 Harbour Master's office and Fish sheds.
