The wreck of the South Australian, which lies close to the island of Lundy in the Bristol Channel, has been put forward for the BSAC Wreck Award 2015, which is awarded by the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC). The BSAC Wreck Award ‘aims to celebrate our underwater heritage by using BSAC members’ first-hand experiences to bring their favourite wreck sites to life’.
Wessex Archaeology carried out a geophysical survey of the South Australian for Ilfracombe and North Devon Sub-Aqua Club (ILFSAC) last summer (more details here). Keith Denby of ILFSAC has put together a website all about the club’s diving on the wreck and the geophysical survey and this has been submitted for the award.
The website features photographs and videos about diving the wreck site as well as images and information from the geophysical survey. Take a look.
We wish Keith and ILFSAC all the best for the award, the result of which will be announced later this month.
