Ghosts of Rosevear
Wreck of the Nancy Packet
Diving on Scilly

Shipwreck Poems

This book tells the facinating story of the celebrated opera singer Ann Cargill, who touched many lives. It is a tale that traverses over two centuries - from her turbulent youth, through her scandalous life, to her tragic death in a shipwreck among the western rocks of Scilly.

One hundred years after her loss near 'Rosevear', the workmen who constructed the Bishop Rock Lighthouse encountered
many strange occurrences on that tiny island; fuelling their beliefs, and those of many others, that Ann's lonely spirit still haunts that desolate, uninhabited shore.

Today we hunt the seabed for her personal fortune in specie and jewels that were also lost in the wreck of the Nancy Packet.
