Ship Wreck British Cruiser "Prince George"

This is the wreck of the Prince George, a British cruiser from the First World War. The ship ran aground here in 1921 when it was on the way to be demolished. On this location, it was partly demolished.

On Google Maps, the ship is also visible. Because of the increasement of the coastal defenses it will disappear under the sand in 2014.
