Wreck of the Rhosneigr on Rhos-on-Sea travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Coastal Features in Wales and England >  Wreck of the Rhosneigr
The wreck of the paddle steamer Rhosneigr can be found off Rhos Point, Rhos-on-Sea, North Wales. The ship went aground on July 20th 1908. Fortunately there were no fatalities as all passengers were offloaded safely. The wreck is visible at very low spring tides. At one time the remains of a second world war Mosquito warplane could be found close by but these have now disappeared. The anchor of the Rhosneigr can be found outside the small complex of shops including a cafe and fishing tackle shops at Rhos Point. The buildings once formed the entrance to the now demolished Rhos-on-Sea Pier. The remains of a medieval stone and timber fish trap can be found on the beach near the wreck.



Wreck of the Rhosneigr - Anchor

Hi Meirion, thanks for the information. My mistake. I canít remember where I got my info from, but I have checked it out with Paul and his mate at Rhos Point and he confirms what you say. The anchors and propeller outside the Rhos Point shops have come from the sea off the Little Orme. As I understand it, Harry Lee discovered the large propeller and John Povah and others brought them ashore, but as you say, none of them are from the wreck of the Rhosneigr.
