The UC46 a UCII Class German WW1 Sub, sunk returning from her first mission by HMS Liberty on the night of 8 Feb 1917. She surfaced on a clear night and was spotted by the Destroyer who opened fire, but this blinded her crew so her Captain, Lt Commander King ordered her to ram the sub which she did. Sinking her with all her crew.
Diving: This is a very intact and interesting sub that sits upright and with a slight list to Port on a sandy seabed at 41m. The decks are at 37-38m with the intact conning tower rising above this. The mine shuts are empty and there is a hole in the side of the conning tower on the Starboard side. The gun points forward and there are still brass ammo cases spilling out of the Port side ready locker.
There is a big old net over this wreck which is quite easy to avoid getting tangled in and is easy to see through to appreciate the wreck still. The external torpedo tubes are still in place and sealed.
