These timbers represent the remains of a vessel on South Beach, Blyth, in Northumberland. She was reported to CITiZAN in March 2018, although we believe from local testimony and wartime photography that she has been in the same position for over 100 years. She was likely exposed as a result of Storm Emma stripping the sand from the foreshore, and will likely be covered again soon.
Several hundred wooden treenails can be seen in situ holding the hull planking, framing timbers and several ceiling planks together. CITiZAN archaeologists also located several copper alloy bolts, heavily damaged. It appears there may have been more, but were removed in previous salvage/scrapping episodes. Her heavy framing suggests a life in the coal trade this coast was once famous for, or possibly even in whaling.
