SS Falcon panorama

The steamer SS Falcon was wrecked off the Dover coast (Langdon Bay) in 1926. She was carrying a cargo of hemp and matches which (unsurprisingly perhaps) caught fire, and she grounded whilst ablaze. The remains are in surprisingly good condition after over 90 years, due to the thick steel hull. The shipwreck can be reached by descending a steep zig zag path down the Langdon cliffs.
This panorama was originally displayed on my old uk-shore.com and coastpx.uk websites.
