The Wreck

By Stewy  
The remains of the steam trawler Sheraton. Built in 1907 and requisitioned by The Navy in 1914 for mine sweeping and anti-submarine duties. In 1942 she was fitted with a forward mounted gun and registered as an armed vessel and served off the East Coast.

After the Second World War she was stripped of her armoury, was painted bright yellow, and used as Royal Air Force target ship.

On the night of April 23rd 1947, severe gales ripped her from her anchorage and she drifted across The Wash and came to rest below the cliffs at Old Hunstanton on the Norfolk coast where she has remained to this day, slowly decaying.

20 second exposure with a Cokin 10 stop ND filter.

A sad end, but a lovely image.
