This is an experimental wave breaking devise used in the Mullberry harbour operation just after D-day in 1944. Its possible that this one sunk in the bad weather just prior to the invasion in the march of that year. There is a small tug just on the side of he wreck (probablly a ViC). There are no tides at this site although it is very silty so watch your bouyancy! It is connected with a line to the stern of the lannding craft which is approx 20 metres to the southwest.
