It is speculated that this landing served as the west "causeway" or landing for Barwick's Ferry from Melvills Warehouse (See Barwick's Ferry). According to Elanor Horsey (E. Horsey Vol. II pp. 26, 27) this landing was south of Brick mill Landing and was located at the mouth of a small creek. The alternate terminus for the ferry may have been Sangston's Landing, which provides access to the road to the Stock Landing and John Hardcastle's Mill.
