England’s coastal heritage under threat

Project receives initial Heritage Lottery Fund support

04 February 2014:
MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology) is today celebrating the announcement that the CITiZAN (Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network) project is to receive initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The public archaeology project aims to record the fragile, nationally important heritage of England’s coast and the foreshores of its tidal estuaries.

Holland No.5 Submarine

Diving the Holland 5
The Nautical Archaeology Society will be continuing to record the hull of the Holland 5 submarine with cameras, video and tape measure survey after being commissioned by English Heritage to undertake a condition assessment of the protected wreck.
The team will also be looking to create a waterproof information notelet to enhance the visitor experience. We will also be taking the opportunity to dive on the Norman's Bay wreck on the second dive of the day.

A1 Submarine

In 2013 the Nautical Archaeology Society with funding from English Heritage established a diver visitor trail on the protected wreck of the HMS m/A1 submarine that sunk in in the eastern Solent in 1911. 

SS Cragside

In 2004 and 2005 the Nautical Archaeology Society as part of our "WreckMap Portland Project" dived on a wreck in Portland Harbour, known then as the "Unknown barge" from its name in the "Dive Dorset" book (John & Vicki Hinchcliff 1999).
