History

Row of C18 to C19 storehouses, the eastern range of two. Four buildings, divided into numerous marine stores: 2 2-storey buildings in centre of same roof height, a lower lofted building to left and a single storey building to right. There were buildings along the back of the harbour from the late C18 but these appear in detail to be C19, possibly incorporating earlier masonry. Part of this range is shown as the Fishermens Arms on the 1849 Hughes map of Tenby. The left end is shown whitewashed with end chimney in early C20 painting.

First range, against retaining wall, is single storey with lean-to roof. Broad double doors to left with timber lintel, small blocked window centre, door centre right and casement pair windows right.
Two 2-storey ranges follow with single roofline, one range canted slightly from other. Right range has 3 C20 triple casement windows to first floor, and ground floor C20 window left, double doors centre and door and window to right. Long concrete lintel over centre and right openings. Left section has 2 tilting 12-pane windows, centre and right, the centre window with brick sides, over ground floor centre broad opening with double board doors.

Left end wall facing St Julian's Church has ground floor centre and right windows with brick heads, single casement and casement pair. Rear left has door to loft from path, brick framed.
