News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Wreck Near Cliffe Fort
« Reply #1 on: July 21, 2010, 03:10:20 »
Does anyone know anything about the shipwreck just south of Cliffe Fort?   As a kid I used to imagine it was the wreck of some pirate ship or something similar, and often snuck onto it whilst dad was birdwatching. I know it's not a pirate ship, but I do wonder what it was and when it's from?

I assume the rows of timbers beside it are the remains of an old jetty or dock.
