Notes :

The site was discovered in 1994 when a local fisherman trawled up some concreted shot and structural fragments. Following the location, and subsequent raising, of a bronze gun the site was designated in an attempt to minimise further damage from fishing gear or uncontrolled diving activities. The wreck is thought to be of 17th C. date and may be a casualty of the 1672 Battle of Sole Bay fo ught between the Dutch and the English. A number of important vessels were lost at the time, the most famous of which being the Royal James.
ADU designation: July 14, 1994; 1994 No. 1; 1994/1842.
