Memorial to the Royal Charter
Memorial to the Royal Charter
The Royal Charter was a 2719 ton steam clipper which on 25 October 1859, approaching the end of a Melbourne - Liverpool voyage with almost 500 passengers and crew on board, was wrecked on the Anglesey coast near Moelfre, with only 39 survivors, who managed to scramble to shore.

This is the memorial to the disaster, outside the Moelfre Seawatch Centre.
