Plaque inscription...

North East Quay - This quay was built in 1878-9 across the line of Friary Quay, named after the medieval Carmelite Friary that once stood north of the harbour.

Behind Salt Quay House ran a rail link to the Great Western Railway - not far from a connection to the London & South Western Railway.

Look closely at the quay wall to see the tunnel arch of the Horsewash. Carters had always led their horses down a slipway to the beach to wash them in the sea. A tunnel was incorporated into the quay to enable this age-old activity to continue.
