Taken on The Great West Country Getaway
Found on our RB Getaway by Pete Ivegotmeacanon and AmandaH, I was only able to take cliff top shots of this wreck due to high tide/rough seas/difficult track down, rain and wind! Yes, I got very wet shortly after taking the shots.
The is the main section of the RMS Mulheim
which broke into two pieces after running aground on the 22nd March 2003, on the rocks at Castle Zawn between Sennen Cove and Land’s End, Cornwall. The vessel was en route from Cork, Ireland, to Lubeck, Germany, and was carrying 2,000-tonnes of plastic scrap. The bow section headed seaward, and broke up. The crew were safely rescued by helicopter by RNAS Culrose, with local lifeboats dispatched also. Most of the plastic was recovered along with batteries and other pollutants.
