Harrington Harbour (2)

The harbour was greatly enlarged in 1891 and covered two and a half acres with a quay 1250 feet long. It could take ships up to 1200 tons and had cranes capable of lifting 10 tons. In 1899 755 steam ships with a total tonnage of 270,000 tons used the harbour.

After the second world war the harbour entrance remained sealed
and the pillbox was still on top of the blocked entrance.
