Notes :

You can dive this wreck but sometimes the police warn you off. It lies only about 0.25 miles from Roker Pier. She is well broken up, but there are two or three large sections. Lots of rows of massive lead batteries to be seen. Two bronze propellers were removed ten years ago, along with her periscope etc. A torpedo tube is still intact, complete with an unexploded torpedo inside. Unexploded mines can also be seen in the sand.
