About the listing
Wreck occurred: 1839
Where: Childers Cove, 30km west of Peterborough
Crew sickness and gale force winds conspired upon this ill fated passage from Launceston to Portland. In 1951 high tide and rough seas exposed the skeletal remains of a man and child believed to be from the wreck which claimed 17 lives.
The anchor was recovered from the wreck by Flagstaff Hill Divers it is now displayed at the front of Flagstaff Hill reception.
