Chesil Inshore Site, Dorset, United Kingdom.

After the winter storms of 2013, Grahame Knott of The Shipwreck Project found a cannon site that had previously been buried in the beach. The date of the wreck is unknown, but research is continuing:-

This site was scanned in 2015 by Deep3D and the team identified a total of seven cannon lying on the site. After reviewing the model, team member Paul Smith – a non-diver – identified another possible cannon that the divers had overlooked. Photogrammetry is a powerful tool, allowing anyone to engage with, understand and contribute to our knowledge of what lies under the waves.

SMS Kronprinz, Scapa Flow, Orkney.

This model represents just a tiny section of this First World War battleship, but it is the only main gun accessible to divers that fired during the battle of Jutland in 1916.

Deep3D regularly visit Scapa Flow in conjunction with the dive boat MV Valkryie. More Scapa examples can be seen in the following link:-
