The northern harbour wall, also known as the pier, is used by lobster boats and is safeguarded by security gates. This is the oldest part of the harbour and was used in the 19thC by the stone boats (granite carrying ships). Later the south wall, or the breakwater, was added to make the harbour a safe anchorage.
