Description

The north-west coast of England is renowned for a number of reasons, not the least being its fierce storms with the inevitable loss of life, damage, shipwrecks, attending lifeboats and emerging heroism which such perilous situations aroused.

Local historian and author Catherine Rothwell has spent forty-nine years on the Fylde coast and the dangerous waters of the Irish Sea awakened in her wonder and fascination with the sea in all its moods. Illustrated with photographs and images of ships, wrecks, mariners and ports and including the recent high-profile wreck of the Riverdance, this book revises and expands work Catherine originally undertook almost thirty years ago, making it a unique guide to the shipwrecks of the north-west.
