At extreme low tides parts of the wreck can still be seen not far from where the Hindlea sunk some 100 years later, though of course without the tragic loss of life.

It is interesting to note that reports of the Royal Charter tragedy took some weeks to appear in the press outside the area; we are so used to instant reporting these days.
