Wreck of the SS Fleswick at the entrance to Hayle Estuary, Cornwall. 29th January 1902
On 28th January 1902 the crew of the Hayle lifeboat E.F. Harrison rescued eleven men and a pilot from the grounded 195 ton screw steamer Fleswick which, inward bound to Hayle with coal from Neath, lay with decks awash off the Black Cliffs. The Fleswick, built by the Ailsa Shipbuilding Company was launched at Troon, Scotland, in 1900 and registered in Whitehaven. Later she survived a near wreck off the Lizard. The old battery guns of Hayle can be seen in the foreground. Photographer: John Charles Burrow.
