Britannia – 57m
Built in 1883, SS Britannia was a 3028 ton, single screw steamship of some 91m in length. Britannia was on a voyage from New York to London, when on July 31st 1884 she sank following a collision with SS Bellcairn in the Channel to the south of Portland. Today she is well broken, but not often visited and makes for an interesting dive. The wreck has distinctive crockery on it marked with Britannia’s name. Distance from Weymouth 18 miles.
