The Wreck Of SS Falcon


The iron-screw steamer SS Falcon was owned and operated by the General Steam Navigation Company.

The iron-screw steamer SS Falcon was beached at Langdon Bay, near Dover, after catching fire in the English Channel in 1926.

Carrying a cargo of hemp and matches, the blaze was a major incident.

The remains are in surprisingly good condition after over 80 years, due to the thick steel hull.  The shipwreck can be reached by descending a steep zig zag path down the Langdon cliffs.
