The first is a potential ships door, identified as such due to its narrow width and angled frame. This was found amongst a pile of timbers from a demolished bach.

The second is the remains of a ships tank found at a site that was most likely a bach, although was not recorded on a map of the baches which dates to the 1930s. /MF
