Gwladmena

Shetland Islands,Europe

The steamship Maggie Warrington was laid down by Irvine Shipbuilding & Drydock in Sunderland, England, and was launched in 1878 for the British company Samuel Hough Ltd. She changed name and owners several times during her career, and sailed as Gwladmena under her last owner Stone T. & Company in Sunderland. Under a journey to Lerwick loaded with coal, she collided with the Danish steamer Flora 2.January 1918 and sank. Salvage has been done on the wreck, and also her old age is starting to show. The wreck rest on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of approx 35 to 40 meter a couple of hundred meters from shore outside Lerwick.
