THE WRECKAGE AT STONEY COVE, LEICESTERSHIRE

Something of interest on our next visit. The oak remains of the Tudor Wreck below. A few of us visited the wreck on our last visit. The anchor and 2 large sections of hull are there. If you are interested in ship design, you can see the oak frames and the timber dowels fastening the planks to the frames. Even crayfish hiding in some of the empty dowel holes! Please don’t try to remove parts of the timbers as they are fragile & bits are falling off … it is over 400 years old!
