This is the primary slipway that
runs from Fore Street down to the
beach.  The Platt at Fore Street
stays level, so the slipway gives an
easy slope down to the beach for
vehicles.  It also contains a
wooden bridge over the leat as it
comes up from underneath Fore
Street.

Although you can get to the beach
directly from the Platt, if you are
coming from Church Hill or
Roscarrock Hill, the slipway is a
faster way down there.  We have
seen people running down the
slipway several times.  Here is one
scene in Series 5, Episode 5 when
Louisa runs down the slipway to
deliver medication to Martin so he
can treat Paul, the fisherman.
