'The Sheraton' - Hunstantons own Shipwreck

Built in 1907, the Sheraton started life as a trawler but was later moored on the Lincolnshire side of the Wash to be used as a target ship. In 1947 she broke free from her mooring in a gale and drifted on to the beach at Hunstanton. The ship was sold to scrap dealers and now only a section of the hull remains.  
Location: Beneath the cliffs at St Edmund's Point.
