On the 07 March 1665 tragedy struck in the Thames estuary, when the warship London exploded with the loss of over 300 souls. Today, more than 350 years later, the tragedy continues as the wreck site washes away with every passing ship and tide. Located not far from Southend pier, a small team of experienced local divers brave the dark and treacherous waters to recover artefacts for public display in Southend Museum.
Hear about the tragedy, the discovery of the wreck as well as the ambitious and exciting plans to try to save the assemblage for future generations to enjoy.
