The undiscovered wreck of a ship which sank in a major maritime disaster 50 years ago may now have been found following a BBC investigation.

The 23 adults and eight children on the Darlwyne died when it disappeared in heavy seas off the Cornish coast on 31 July 1966.

The pleasure cruiser was returning to Mylor after a day trip to Fowey.

Despite an extensive search using state of the art cold war equipment, the ship was never found.

The formal investigation found that the skipper had acted negligently as the Darlwyne "was not fit to go to sea with passengers", and that Mr Bown had ignored local advice to stay in port. Over the next fortnight 12 bodies were washed up on local beaches.

Autopsies revealed that the victims drowned in deep water.

For the 50th anniversary, BBC Inside Out South West worked with a dive team to uncover what happened.

The team believed that the original search had been carried out in the wrong place and that due to the bad storm the skipper would have taken a route closer to Dodman Point.

Programme producer Jeremy Hibbard, who led the recent investigation, said: "We looked all the alleged sightings of the Darlwyne.


We looked at the wind and storms which had come in to the south west, we looked at the currents, we looked at where the bodies were found." After searching the new site, diver Mark Milburn said: "About 30 minutes into the dive I suddenly came across various bits of metalwork.

"It's the right size for the Darlwyne, there's nothing concrete to say it is but it's got the right size of anchor on, my best guess is it's more than likely it is the Darlwyne."

The ship's owner - John Campbell Maitland Barrett - was ordered to pay £500 towards the cost of the original investigation.

Diver Nick Lyon said: "The Darlwyne had been forgotten because it sank the day after England won the 1966 World Cup.

"This is something which is still in living memory and the relatives need some closure.” he said.

The famous blue and white striped Cornishware pottery could be made in the county it was named after, nearly 100 years after it first appeared.

The plan is part of a multimillion-pound regeneration project including re- branding St Austell as “Clay Town” in tribute to it as the centre of Cornwall’s china clay industry.

It’s hoped the town could become a centre for the ceramic arts. A partnership with Stoke-on-Trent – famous for pottery – is also planned.

James Staughton, chairman of the St Austell Bay Economic Forum and chief executive of St Austell Brewery, said it was a “huge opportunity” for the town.

Cornishware was first produced in Derbyshire in 1924 and was so named because the blue and white stripes reminded an employee of Cornwall’s blue skies and white-crested waves.

“China clay is unique to us and it’s something we should really celebrate from the rooftops,” Mr Staughton told BBC News.

“By putting together a programme of events as a cultural destination, I think we can encourage people in, who will spend their time and hopefully their well-earned money.”

However, Ally Watkins, who runs a spice shop, said she was sceptical as previous attempts had failed because businesses and residents were not listened to.

In the early 20th Century, Cornwall dominated the world’s market, producing one million tonnes of china clay every year – 75% of which was exported – and employed more than 7000 local workers.

Known as “white gold”, china clay powered the local economy then and it is hoped the Clay Town project could do so again.
