Notes :

The Coronation, a 90 gun second rate built in Portsmouth in 1685, was lost in heavy weather sometime shortly after September 1691. The site lies in two separate concentrations; Coronation (Inshore) is the inshore site found in 1967, and Coronation (Offshore) is the offshore section (see 14 above) which was found during a magnetometer survey in 1977. The site is being surveyed by a marine biologist studying the flora and fauna colonising the wreck.
ADU designation: March 31, 1978; 1978 No. 2; 1978/321.
ADU licences: 1991-4 survey.
