The Holland 5 Submarine Project

Author(s): Mark I Beattie-Edwards

Year: 2013


The Holland 5 submarine was one of the Britsh Royal Navy's first commissioned submarines. Lost in August 1912 she lay on the seabed off Eastbourne, Sussex, Egland until being discovered by a recreational diver in 1995.  Since 2006 the Nautical Archaeology Society have been organising trips to the submarine and undertaking monitoring work of the boats condition. The distant offshore position of the wreck presents unique problems to the heritage agencies in how the site should be protected. This poster will present an overview of the issues of access, protection, monitoring as well as recent research work undertaken as part of a television documentary series.
