10 September 2011 – Frode & Worthing Wall

The Frode sank during the Second World War, the victim of a German mine which had been laid by a submarine. A Norwegian-flagged steamship on a voyage from Newhaven to the Mumbles, she was sunk in 1941.
The wreck now lies at a depth of about 7m. Shifting sands have a habit of revealing something new on every visit, so there’s no such thing as a standard Frode dive. 
The most recognisable shape in the debris field is the ship’s boiler. Otherwise, it was a case of enjoying the marine life which has colonised The Frode’s twisted remnants. Crabs, dead men’s fingers, blennies.
