This is Mill drift which runs across the marsh beginning at the coast road just opposite Grouts Lane. Tumbrils used to travel up here taking corn to the mill and carrying back sacks of flour. It is said that the artillery during the 1st World War destroyed the mill by using it for target practice, the excuse being that it was a dangerous landmark for enemy planes.
Another old photo, taken from the east end of Salthouse, shows this mill in the distance with only its bottom half remaining. See it
and (below) a 1930 view with a hut standing on the site of the mill which has completely gone.
