Welcome to the Martime Archaeology Trust's SS Braedale site viewer
SS Braedale was lost in a storm in the early hours of October 16th, 1932, though fortunately the crew of eight were able to launch a single boat and row to safety at Brighstone on the Isle of Wight. Braedale was a cargo steamer with a triple expansion engine, built in 1894 at Glasgow. At the time of loss, Braedale was carrying a cargo of apples from Dieppe to Bristol. Today, the wreck lies in 30m of water and stands up to 2m off the sand and shingle seabed.
