Working at Lawrenny

ThWorking at Lawrennyis intertidal fieldschool, will work on a large wreck, located just a short walking distance of the Lawrenny village hall classroom and hostel and only 500m from a local hostelry. The wreck starts to become accessible around two hours after high water providing a working window of around 7-8 hours, however the beach is very muddy so wellington boots are an essential piece of kit!

Once exposed, the site extends to an area of around 23m x 8m and consists of substantial timber frames interconnected with other major structural timber members, planking and a multitude of interesting features from which the style and type of vessel can be determined.  One side of the wreck has collapsed and lies flat on the beach making it ideal for carrying out 2D survey work. During your fieldschool you will have the chance to complete planning frame drawings of this section, contributing of a mosaic of this side of the site. The other side of the wreck stands around 2m high and is ideal for carrying out 3D survey work.
