Helvetia Shipwreck Rhossili Bay, Gower, Wales


This is a photo of the shipwreck of the Helvetia, which has been at Rhossili since 1887. The Helvetia which wrecked during a severe gale, laden with 500 tons of Oak reportedly made the locals very rich from the salvage.
The ocean-stripped oak carcass of the Helvetia shipwreck is today an easily recognised landmark of Rhossili and must be one of the most photographed of objects on the Gower peninsula as a whole.
