Royal Anne Galley Lizard point Dive

Royal Anne Galley Lizard point Dive: A collection of video clips and stills from a dive on The Royal Anne Galley at Britain’s most Southerly Point, Lizard Point, in Cornwall. The dive was made by Kennack diving and was a survey dive in conjunction with English Heritage.

The ‘Royal Anne’ was a fifth-rate oared frigate built at Woolwich (of the Preliminary Establishment of 1706-1718) and launched in 1709 with an armament of 40 guns and a compliment of 127 men. On 10 November 1721, while on a voyage to Barbados, bad weather forced her to return to port in Falmouth and she was wrecked on the Stag Rocks.

There were only three survivors; the most notable of those who perished was Lord Belhaven who was en route to taking up the Governorship of Barbados.
