Digital colour photograph showing the last survivor of a group of about twenty seaweed drying huts that used to be located at Freshwater West in the early 20th century. The huts were used for drying seaweed that was harvested by women from the village of Angle. The seaweed was laid out on the floor of a hut for a week, and once dry was sent to Swansea for processing into laver bread. Taken by our Maritime Investigator Julian Whitewright in April 2022.
