The Mystery of the Thorpeness Wreck
Register for this free event here: Thorpeness Wreck
The ‘wreck’ that has been exposed by the February storms on Thorpeness beach has generated a huge amount of interest as a result of an East Anglia Daily Times article by Katy Sandalls.History is not written in books or found in museums. It is all around us – in the landscape, buildings and objects that we come across.
Two layers of heavy planking are held together with trenails into an equally large frame. There is no sign of metal work, and the planking remains. C19, C18 or even older...we don't know yet.
Nor do we know how long it will remain exposed on the beach.
IBTC's own Mike Tupper will be part of the panel do discuss thoughts and answer questions about this historic wreck.
