Berrow Wreck

Article text
In March 1897, the Norwegian barque SS Nornen was wrecked off Burnham on Sea in Somerset. More than a century later, the bones of the ship are still visible at low tide. Scour by the sea has excavated the fine sand from around the wreck so water remains within the hull, reflecting colour in the sky. Its stern oriented towards the south west, the wreck aligns with winter sunset.
