History

The RMS Mulheim (originally named Zeus) first launched in 1999. In 2003 the ship was sailing from Germany to Ireland with a cargo of automotive plastics destined to be recycled. There was moderate visibility at the time the ship was navigating the furthest west corner of England and the ship met its end. An investigation found that the unfortunate (and somewhat comical) end the ship met was the result of the officer on watch catching his trousers in his chair mechanism when trying to stand up. He fell, knocking himself unconscious, and when he righted himself the ship was already set on a course for the shoreline. Between them, the Sennen lifeboat and Lands End Coastguard rescued the 6 man crew, who were treated for shock.

We first made our way down to the wreckage in August, a little before sunset. The tide was quite high at this point so getting close to the wreck was tricky but it allowed for some nice pictures. Our second trip was more carefully planned, taking tides into account to ensure we could see more of what little remains.

The route down the cliff isn't as tricky as it first appears and once at the shoreline there is a fantastic sense of isolation. We made our way down with a nice brunch packed and had ourselves a picnic before moving to the wreck. The trickiest thing is negotiating the slippery rocks, whilst the twisted metal just seems like an adult climbing frame. The remains of the ship sit at an angle of around 45° so it is very disorienting once you get on board.
