Statement of Interest
The bod and slipway terminate the vista from the Haa, and are a reminder of the fact that nearly all communication between the Haa and the rest of the islands was by sea. They also form a historically and visually interesting group that frames the entrance to the graveyard and St Mary?s chancel arch. Although partially modernised, the cottage appears to be roughly contemporary with the bod and slipway, and is an essential part of the group.
