Protection for wreck sunk in 1703 (UK)





An English warship thought to have sunk in the Great Storm of 1703 is to be given protected status, Culture Minister David Lammy has announced.
The wreck, lying in Pevensey Bay, off the East Sussex coast, is believed to be that of the 70-gun Resolution.

The ship, now designated under the Protection of Wrecks Act 1973, could provide an insight into the maritime and military history of the period.
