Breydon Widgeon is a steel trawler that has been discovered by recreational divers in 2000. The wreck is overgrown with plumose anemone and cuthona. The Breydon Widgeon stands upright and is in great shape. The ship has served as a trawler and safety vessel for offshore installations. There are rumors that they deliberately sank it in 1990 because it was a drug ship. It is a relatively easy dive. The wreck lies no deeper than 25 meters, visibility is good and it’s easy to orientate yourself. A great wreck for beginners in the North Sea.
