Haven, East

   HAVEN, EAST, a village, in the parish of Panbride, county of Forfar, 4½ miles (S. W.) from Arbroath; containing 145 inhabitants. This place derives its affix from its relative situation with respect to another village, about a mile distant, and also on the sea-coast. It is neatly built, and is inhabited chiefly by persons engaged in the fishery, and in the trades requisite for the supply of the immediate neighbourhood. The fish that are taken are, lobsters, cod, haddocks, and other kinds, which are found in abundance off this part of the coast, and are sent to Dundee and other places in the vicinity, and to the London market. Great quantities of lobsters are forwarded to London, being kept alive during the passage by the free admission of sea-water into wells constructed for that purpose. The cod and haddocks are sold fresh at Dundee, and markets in the vicinity; and alter the supply of the neighbourhood, many are salted, and exported to distant places. Three boats are employed in the fishery: the season for the lobster-fishing commences in the beginning of February, and usually terminates about the end of May. A considerable trade, also, is carried on here, during the summer, in the importation of coal and lime; and there are, belonging to this place and West Haven, four vessels, varying in burthen from about fifty to seventy tons. The village has no properly constructed harbour, but merely an open cove or landing place, accessible to vessels of eighty tons; so that, from the want of shelter, the trade is entirely discontinued during the winter. Facility of intercourse is afforded by the great turnpike-road from Dundee to Arbroath, and by the Dundee and Arbroath railway, which has an intermediate station here, a handsome structure in the Elizabethan style, furnished with every requisite accommodation.
