There was an interesting debate happening on the facebook page of Rame Peninsula Beach Care when they uploaded these photographs. The question is, the remains (above and below) belong to which ship? Sand has been washed away to reveal this relic but people are saying that it was there in the 1970s suggesting that over time sand is washed away and returns in a regular cycle. We notice this at our local beach at Whitsand where, in the summer the sand is flat and solid and then, come winter, it gets swept away to reveal large boulders, only to return as flat sand the next spring. Some people are suggesting the new wreck is the Emma Christ whereas others say the remains are of the Chancellor but, as there is a ships boiler a few miles East at the other end of the bay (known locally as Boiler beach) the debate is, which boiler is from which ship.
