Welcome to the Weymouth & Portland Wreck to Reef website…

Weymouth and Portland Wreck to Reef is the non-profit community group that was originally set up to obtain permissions to source and to sink a single ship as an artificial reef at a location to the east of Weymouth and Portland.

Because of the difficulty in obtaining those permissions it soon became apparent that the way forward was to obtain permissions for a square kilometre of sea bed where we could sink not just one, but two ex-naval warships.  Along with other inert reef material creating a reef sanctuary that it is hoped would be the first of many in the UK.

As you delve into the site, you will see Wreck to Reef has made considerable progress.

We are the only organisation in the UK to have all permissions in place and our quest to locate, purchase and clean a suitable ship continues in earnest.
