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.
