Site of Tearing Ledge 3D Model
This model shows the wreck site of the Eagle wrecked on Tearing Ledge in Scilly in 1707. The Eagle was a 70-gun English warship, built in 1679. The Eagle had a crew of about 440 under her captain, Robert Hancock. The seabed topography was modeled from multi-beam echo sounder data collected by MSDS marine. The Tearing Ledge is a rock pinnacle which breaks surface at low tide, and is situated to the south-east of the Bishop Rock lighthouse in the Isles of Scilly. Underwater, the Tearing Ledge is surrounded by very large rock gullies with some patches of sandy sediment.
