This 'C' shaped fishtrap is visible on historic Ordnace survey mapping (1886-1925). It consists of a curving stone wall, extending from boulders near the low tide line. It curves some 140m in a westerly direction and terminates some 100m from the high tide line, pointing shoreward. The fish trap was first recorded during RCAHMW aerial reconnaissance, and then on regular subsequent occassions. It has now been scheduled.
