I remember the wreck on Marsden Rocks between Alnmouth and Boulmer.

The bow section made of steel was visible at all states of tide in the 1950s onwards until its removal in late 20th century when I believe it was removed by a scrap metal merchant.
I have heard stories that the cargo was cement and the wreck happened in the 1930s with the crew being rescued by Boulmer Coast Guard using breaches boy.
Can anyone confirm, correct or add to the storey I was given.
