Elizabethan shipwreck on the move

1 post in this topic

Tudor Gresham Ship wreck moves to National Diving Centre

The wreck of an Elizabethan merchant ship is being transported to a new home in Leicestershire after being raised from a Portsmouth lake.

The so-called Gresham Ship has been 6m (20ft) underwater at Horsea Island Lake since being moved there after its discovery in the River Thames in 2003.

A large crane was used to lift the 400-year-old wreck for the journey to the Stoney Cove National Diving Centre.

Project director Mark Beattie-Edwards said the ship was "in good order".

Its destination is the National Diving Centre - a flooded quarry at Stoney Cove - where it will be used as an "underwater classroom" to train nautical archaeologists.
