The type of this vessel is not known but it is the shape of a small, 9m long wooden motor fishing vessel. The hull appeared alongside the steel barge Hooe Lake 10 between 2005 and 2007 and was broken up by 2018, flattened by a large timber painting stage.
Please get in touch if you have any information about this vessel by sending us a message below.
The broken and flattened remains of this vessel lie between the steel barge and a wooden painting stage.
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. Note that Hexton Quay is private property and is not open to the public.
