GRACE DIEU

DESCRIPTION + /

The remains of the wreck of an English carrack which was burnt in the River Hamble in 1439 after being struck by lightning. Built in 1418 for Henry V, as a large clinker-built carrack, part of her crew mutinied on her one known cruise, and never went to sea again, being laid up in Southampton Water for several years. She was then towed upstream to her final mud berth on the River Hamble. Following the lightning strike she was then partially broken up for salvage. Now designated as a protected wreck site under the Protection of Wrecks Act, 1973.
