History

The Rosehill was a 300ft, 3000 ton armed merchant ship, she was torpedoed by U40 in September 1917 whilst travelling from Cardiff to Plymouth. She sank some 2 miles south of Portwrinkle, 2 miles to the east of the James Eagan Layne.

 

Diving

rosehill divingShe lies at about 29m and her 2 boilers stand proud at around 24m. She was over 300 ft long and had a gross tonnage of nearly 3000 tons. The Rosehill resembles the Persier in a smaller scale apart from the very large boilers that are usually home to large shoals of Pouting. The Rosehill supports a variety of fish, cod, bass, pollack, wrasse and conger whilst the plates are covered with fan corals.

The stern section is well defined. Here there is a gun that is quite impressive. The steering gear, rudder and part of her propeller can be clearly seen. This site can be a little silty, but on occasions the vis can be very good.
