Branscombe Mouth

Number of views as of 3rd September 2014 = 340.

Branscombe is a lovely village in South East Devon, England, situated in a wooded valley (or combe) leading down to the shore at Branscombe Mouth, and the amazing Jurassic Coast world heritage site.

On the 18th of January 2007, a container ship (the MSC Napoli) carrying over 2000 containers was damaged in a storm in the English Channel, forcing the rescue of her crew. Two days later the Napoli was beached at Branscombe to enable the salvage of her cargo. Before the authorities could arrange proper security, ‘wreckers’ moved in causing chaos in the narrow lanes around the village and removing anything of value they could lay their hands on. One day – Lyme Bay, the next on ebay. One of the anchors from the ship remains at Branscombe Mouth to commemorate the wreck.

Date: 26th August 2012.
