Remains of an fishing trawler on the southern shore of Hooe Lake, near Oreston in Plymouth.

Type

Motor Fishing Vessel

History

Very little is known about the vessel; the wheelhouse has the name Dignity hand painted on the headband but we have been unable to trace a ship matching that name and type. A photograph taken inside the ship suggests that the official number may be 361091.R.T. It has also been suggested that this is the French built trawler Mam Goz, the name means 'Grandmother' in the Breton language.

Description

The ship arrived in Hooe Lake before 2001. By 2011 the ship had been stripped and vandalised, she had a hole in her port side so flooded with the tide. The wheelhouse had a badly painted name Dignity on the headband. The ship was largely intact in 2016 but lying hard over on her port bilge, but by 2020 the port side had collapsed downwards, tearing where the sides meet the lower frames.

Location and Access

Hooe Lake, Oreston, Plymouth

From Oreston, take the Lower Saltram road off Plymstock Road then turn right into Kingfisher Way. Follow the road down to the lake and there is a car park at the end. Take the footpath heading south under the folly and follow it round to the hulk, there is a gap in the bushes where you can walk through to the beach. Alternatively, walk round via the beach but take care as the rocks are slippery.

Nearby hulks include the trawler Hooe Lake 7 SHIPS Link, trawler Bon Ami SHIPS Link, Hooe Lake 8 SHIPS Link, Hooe Lake 9 SHIPS Link, barge Hooe Lake 10 SHIPS Link, motor launch ML39387 SHIPS Link.
