The wreck of the Norseman can be found on the banks of the River Hamble at Lower Swanwick in the county of Hampshire in the UK.UK_Map

Well known to local residents at one time, the history of the ship had been lost and gradually the wreck became simply a navigation mark on the river and a source of firewood.

However, the wreck is substantial and at low tide can be clearly seen by visitors from the shore or by aircraft (see below - image courtesy of Google Earth).

Firmly embedded in thick river silt, the Norseman is not an easy site to investigate. The sea fully uncovers the wreck for just a short time each day with the best times for surveying occurring just twice a month during Spring tides.
