BLUE HARBOUR 2
I really like the roughly cut hefty stone blocks of the harbour wall. Law stone, from the old quarry in the side of our prominent local landmark, is a reddish coloured phonolytic (it rings when you hit it!) trachite (an igneous volcanic rock) that was used for many of the old buildings around the town. I don't know if this is what was used for the harbour construction or whether it was cut much closer in the vicinity of the harbour - better speak to a geologist!
