Wreck of SS Denham

Denham was a little study vessel situated in Liverpool which struck a mine and sank with just 1 survivor, implicit 1941 she was sunk by the mine in 1946 with a deficiency of 8 men, my supposition that is with Wallasey’s second World War firearm site in nearness the mine was presumably extra beach front guards from adversary make, quite a tragic thing that the boat met its destiny with the mine 1 year into peacetime.

5/ 5

An easy 30 minute walk accessible on low spring tides from the Derby Pool. The wreck is of the Mersey Docks & Harbours survey vessel SS Denham. She sank in 1946 with all hands after hitting a German sea mine. German mines remained a hazard to shipping for years after the end of hostilities in 1945. The wreck 's wheelhouse and funnel were dispersed to the gunwales so as not to cause a hazard to shipping.
