More about this scene

Three-quarters of a mile offshore from Whitsand Bay, visible only through the buoy marking her position, is the wreck of the 'James Egan Layne', an American liberty ship which was torpedoed on 21 March 1942. It is probably the most dived-on wreck in Britain - on calm summer days there is usually a large fleet of dive boats anchored at the site.
