I rememember visiting this wreck in the 1960`swhen I was 20 yrs old.Me and a friend Tony Susans climbed down the cliff face to get to it.It was further out then on the rocks already broken in half with the bow pointing to the cliff and the stern pointing out to sea.There was a tripod gantry fixed up at the top of the cliff where the salvage people had been working from with a cable running out to the wreck.When we climbed across the rocks to get close to get pics of it I slipped and fell between the rocks and nearly drowned a day I will never forget.This is fantastic its still around and can be seen on Earth Google thanks Peter...

Not sure how you could have seen this wreck in the '60's - it ran aground on New Years Eve 1982!
