|Wave buoy location||55° 11.11' N 001° 28.69' W|
|Approximate water depth||18 m CD|
|Approximate spring tidal range||4.2 m|
|Storm threshold||3 m|
Wave parameters are recorded using a Datawell Directional WaveRider Mk III buoy. The buoy was deployed on 21 June 2013, at which time the magnetic declination at the site was 2.2° west, changing by 0.18° east per year. A DWR had previously been deployed at this location from 20 May 2010 to 04 February 2011.
