Ynyslas Wreck Recording (2015)

In June 2015 MADU (operating on behalf of the NAS) again joined forces with the Dyfed Archaeological Trust (DAT) to re-visit Ynyslas Beach in mid Wales to monitor & record the remains of Hulk 3 that is emerging from the bank of the Afon Leri (River Leri).    

For a couple of days the weather was against us and additional safety measures were introduced including the running of safety lines which members of the team could tie on to when working close to the water.
