Notes :

Choose a quiet time to do this one or you could yourself thrashing about with dozens of divers on the shot. I dived her one morning at about 8.00 and there were at least 14 divers on her !! Best midweek or evening. Aviod bank holidays. Still a geat dive and still lots to be had. There a beautiful bottles of perfume still on her, and pottery etc. Wreck very flattened now although some bits stand 6-7m high. Nice swim thro in midships area just near the boilers. Stern is good for a rummage. Viz can be spectactular (15m) or a nightmare (<2m). Definalty dive at slack (neaps best) as currents up to 3-4knots ! Alternatively makes a great drift over the wreck, and onto the nearby musselbeds
