Location description (1957)
Western Entrance (7-9 fm.). On the southern margin of Queen's Ground, at about 6 fm., the dredge is loaded with well-rounded stones of varied composition, suggestive of a beach deposit, but probably in fact caused by present current action since the ground is barren. Farther to the south, level with the Breakwater Iighthouse, stones are dredged densely covered with the calcareous tubes of Pomatoceros, and others bearing growths of red weeds and hydroids. Various small crustaceans shelter amongst such encrusting growths, including Anthura gracilfs which occupies old Pomatoceros tubes. Big clusters of Tubularia indivisa have been taken here
