|Buoy Marking - Margaret Smith Wreck|
‘By increasing people’s understanding and enjoyment of the National Park’s coastal heritage, we hope people will appreciate it more and want to care for it for future generations.’
The four wrecks which have been marked with buoys are:
- The Serrana – a steam ship torpedoed by a German U-boat in the First World War with the loss of five lives
- The Fenna – a timber two-masted Dutch schooner which sank in bad weather in 1881
- The Ceres – a steam barge which was caught out by strong winds and sank in 1898
- The Margaret Smith - a dredger carrying a cargo of gravel which sunk in 1978. This represents the archaeology of the future, allowing archaeologists and divers to monitor how the ship deteriorates.
