Quay. Trading site since at least The Iron Age but present structure is circa late
C18. Slatestone rubble with granite quoins and copings linked by iron staples.
Situated at the head of a peninsula between Cowlands Creek and Lamouth Creek.
Polygonal loading area with retaining quay walling to north, east and south east and
south sides. 6 loading bays. Walling is mostly vertically-set drystone rubble
alternating to south walling with shorter sections with horizontal coarsing. Loading
bays have side walls with horizontally coursed rubble and cobbled ramps between. At

Roundwood Quay in the C18 was used to ship copper and tin ore from Chacewater and
North Downs mines. Vessels up to 300 tons were able to moor alongside at the lowest
tides.
