SD0497 : Shipwreck

taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Drigg, Cumbria, Great Britain

Uncovered at low tide, the footprint of an unknown sailing vessel. Each tide seems to reveal different parts of what remains. Length approx. 50ft, beam 14ft.
To the north, approaching Barn Scar, small sections of riveted plate can be found said to be the remains of a ship blown up as part of a Naval exercise, possibly connected with the Gunnery range at Eskmeals 5m to the South
