The twin masted steamer Ariel was sunk in collision with the steamer Lancashire on the 10th June 1892, she was 300ft long & weighed 2.200 ton. She was carrying a cargo of wheat to Varna, Hamburg.

 The wreck sits in a depth of 28mtrs & stands 3-4mtrs   The decks have collapsed and ribs can be seen the stern is on its keel and upright while the bow is deeper but intact. The stern gear is all clearly visible  and as you swim forwards up the wreck you come across the engine and boiler room. Loads of life
