The Scrieve Board is one of two covered bost-building slipways at Devonport South Yard and probably dates from the 1830s.
The slipway is 88.7m long and 31.4m wide. Its original wooden structure is now clad with corrugated iron and the original slip floor has been recovered.
The roof of the slip was designed by Mr Perring, Clerk of the Cheque at the dockyard.
The Scrieve Board is a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
