Artefacts recovered from the World War I Spanish Prince Wreck, Dover Harbour, Kent, UK. The object above the anchor shank appears to be the curved arch of the wreck's stern, with the vertical section on the right being the bottom of the keel above which (ie to the left) the rudder was once fixed. The squat L-shaped item towards top-left may be the top of the rudder post (ie the rudder once lay between it and the bottom of the keel to the right). Members of the Gaverland Sea Barge crew thought the anchor was "a bit small" for a ship the size of the Spanish Prince - perhaps it belonged to the War Sepoy (an adjacent World War II blockship), or maybe it was just part of the ballast loaded prior to scuttling.

Dover Western Docks viewed from above the Western Heights. The "see image record" link has pins (placemarks) for the World War I Spanish Prince blockship at the western end of the Southern Breakwater and the Lord Warden Hotel (now Lord Warden House) at the landward end of the Admiralty Pier (the blockship at the lighthouse end of the pier is the Livonian cargoship).

Google Earth shows a fresh view of course. No Loco Depot or very few features south of the Dover - Folkestone line now. The main Train Shed has been left but reduced a little.The Viaduct Road has been modernised Google shows a large Cruise liner longside the Train shed.
