The Betsy Anna was an 880 ton steel steamer built in 1892 on the river Tyne.

 

On a foggy day early in October 1926, the Betsy Anna struck Prawle Point in Devon. The salvors blocked the holes and refloated her intending to tow her to Cowes for repair. Unfortunately during a gale on October 11th, the tow rope parted and her bow 'broke' resulting in her coming to rest on the seabed in the current position.
