Wreckage


HMS Snaefell was built in 1907 as a passenger/excursion ferry, but hired by the Admiralty from October 1939 and converted to a mine-sweeper. On 5 July 1941, the paddle-steamer was on passage from London for Leith when she foundered and was lost following an attack by enemy aircraft, offshore from Curry Point, near Whitley Bay.
