FISHING BOX ON THE RIVER BANK TO THE EAST OF THE ABBEY RUINS / / / ST BRIDGET BECKERMET / COPELAND / CUMBRIA / II / 76362 / NY0522806367

Stone seat of uncertain date constructed of chamfered jamb stones from the Abbey ruins and associated with the monastic settlement. The construction stands c.0.35 m high. The south and west faces are re-used chamfered jamb stones; the east face and top are rough-dressed slabs. The north side is open and provides access to a void which is said to have been used by the monks when fishing, to store their catch ... the association with the monks for fishing purposes is unlikely as there is evidence that adjacent fields served as the monastic fish ponds.
