Lyra

Viken,Norway

Lyra was built in England and launched in 1882. Under a journey from Wallsend On Tyne to Kristiania loaded with coal, she hit ground on Flateguri 23.December 1914 outside Hankø and sank. The salvage company Norsk Bjergningskompani came to assist and salvaged the cargo and other inventory. Under work on the wreck they lost their own boat Trold. The remains of her rest today on a depth of 10 to 30 meter, approx fifty meter southwest from the light on Flateguri.
