The following buildings shall be added to the list SU 4211 ELM STREET 4/302 Quay wall at American Wharf GV II Quay wall. C18 or earlier. Squared and coursed stone. Length of quay wall adjacent to Chapel Mills Steam Mill and store (q.v.). Wall starts immediately opposite east wall of the warehouse, with east-west run ofcls metres, returning to north-south run c20 metres, at the northern end of the exposed walling is a section of sheet steel piling set forward from assumed wall position about 2 metres, and with a run of c 13 metres: it seems likely that the original stone wall lies covered by the rubble backfill behind this piling. The wall is in mainly good cut squared blocks, and is generally without coping, but there is a section with concrete coping on the east facing run. Beyond the section described the wall has been either replaced with or greatly modified by mass concrete facings or additions and is not of special interest. The quay wall adjacent to the former Steam Mill is an important historic survival in the Port of Southampton and remains in recognisable early state despite con- siderable later additions and modifications in the immediate area.

Please note that the inclusion of a listed building on this website does not mean it is open to the public.
