Lying just a few miles out of Folkestone Harbour is an unidentified early model fully sail rigged steamship, this ship has plenty of dead eyes and the other normal paraphernalia of a fully rigged sailing ship but also has boilers amidships and a single rather flat early model propeller at the stern.
This fascinating wreck is upright and very intact, the masts and superstructure have all collapsed or been swept away. Her bow and bell are buried into a large sandbank at 29m depth, the intact hull is largely full of sand however once you get to the engine room area amidships the decking is nicely broken up so you can drop into here and have a good rummage around.
Moving back the stern hold is full of soft sand and a lot of crockery has come out of here, if you push your hand down into it you can quite easily feel the plates packed in cases buried here.
Moving back the raised and very intact stern is the highest part of the wreck at 27m and you can drop under this for a look at the propeller and rudder which is the deepest point at 33m.
