The first phase of the project involved the recording of high resolution multi-beam data. This was undertaken by Mark James of MSDS Marine. The multi-beam data was then used to model the topography around each of the sites in the 3D models. The second phase comprised the collection of photographs and video from each of the sites to illustrate the virtual tours. This was accomplished by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Maritime Archaeology Society(CISMAS). The final phase was the production of web-based virtual site tour the work for which was undertaken by Tom Goskar and Kevin Camidge.

The site lies on the seabed to the south of the uninhabited Island of Little Ganinick, in the Isles of Scilly. It comprises three distinct areas of wreckage: the main cargo mound which consists of an orderly stack of pipes and wheels (after which the site was named), a scatter of iron cylinder fragments situated about 11m to the north-west of the cargo mound, and part of a 19th century iron anchor lying about 60m to the south-west of the cargo mound.

Public access to the site is achieved by licence under the Protection of Wrecks Act. This licensing is currently administered by Historic England. The three dive charter boats operating in Scilly have annual licences to visit the protected wreck sites.
