Notes :

This wreck, believed to be the British warship Anne, was designated after attempts to loot the site in 1974. The Anne, a 70 gun ship-of-the-line launched in 1678 at Chatham, formed an important part of Pepys' Restoration Navy but was lost after the Battle of Beachy Head in 1690. A brief archaeological survey in 1974 demonstrated that a significant portion of the lower part of the hull su rvives.
ADU designation: March 23, 1992; 1992 No. 1; 1992/347; Original Designation Order (June 20, 1974; 1974 No. 7; 1974/910) revoked and re-designated as above to correct an error in position.
ADU licences: 1974-5 survey.
