That's the new landfill, New Ferry also has a historic landfill site, I think that is part of shorefields, probably where the clay was dug up for the brickworks.

I see what you mean now

My Idea is that the pits where left open from the brickworks clay collecting and then filled in as part of the landfill

No - cancel that - the playing fields behind the sewage works is the brick works, and so that is possibly the old landfill.

Ok, looking at old maps, the shoreline hasn't been significantly changed suddenly at any point, so this is not reclaimed land like I always thought it was.

Another option is that the council just dumped a load of hardcore on the shoreline to reduce the erosion, which is a significant problem there. This is an exceptionally poor solution. I think new ferry suffers from undercutting, where the base eroded and the land about 20ft back from the edge tries to slip down and under the front edge.

There seems to be loads of documents mentioning erosion management and including new ferry as one area of action, but all the details refer to other areas and ignore new ferry.

I'll get a bigger spade out after and see what I can dig up.

There is no mistery about the area of shore line at the clay hills. Was always the clay hills back in the 1940s. so no secrete weapons or tunnels. just a load of rubble dumped over the last 60years
