The wreck site of the paddlesteamer ALBION lies on the beach at Albion Sands, Pembrokeshire. On the 18th April 1837, on route from Dublin to Bristol, the vessel struck a rock while travelling through nearby Jack Sound and was then run ashore in an effort to save the ship, crew, passengers and cargo. All the crew and passengers were saved, along with much of the cargo. The ship could not be salvaged and broke up on the beach, which has subsequently assumed the name of the ship, along with its archaeological remains.
This model of the ALBION site was recorded on the 1st April 2022 using a DJI Mini2 drone as part of regular monitoring work. The ALBION is listed in the National Monuments Record of Wales (NPRN 272842) https://coflein.gov.uk/en/site/272842/
