Full Description

Up to the 1920s the wharf was a timber construction wide and strong enough to carry a horse and cart. Since then it has gradually been dismantled for its timber - 2 parallel lines of stumps remain, 2ft high and 10ft apart. (1)
Wharf (dismantled), possible basin (silted up) and small warehouse or boathouse (standing) on the Trent, C19. The wharf included a jetty, of which only the wooden stumps survive. The inlet or basin appears to have reached up to just below the buildings. The top end is now completely silted up. The buildings include a wooden structure and a red brick building with a pantile roof. It is of 2 storeys and has a large door fronting onto the basin, which may have been used for taking in boats.
