The collier Bessie at Hayle, Cornwall. 1866

A view of the Bessie, with details of the bow and figurehead, alongside at Hayle after being aground on Hayle Bar. Lelant church can be seen on the horizon in the background. SS Bessie (ON 49984) was an iron three masted brigantine rigged steamer of 287 tons gross, built in 1865 for the busy Hayle to Bristol trade and launched by Harvey and Company of Hayle. She was sold in 1889 to James Richards of Penarth and ran aground at Carbis Bay on 18th November 1893 while carrying coal from Cardiff to Portland, under the command of Captain David Moloney. Cintra and Vulture were wrecked on the same occasion. Photographer: Edward Ashton
