    mv Temple Hall - a set on Flickr

    At the above URL I have posted 4 images:
    Two of the wreck in Arrecife in Lanzarote and one each of the anchors & part of the final cargo. The link also shows locations.

    Default Temple Hall

    It's sad to see an old British built ship rotting away, but I think it is preferable than the fate of many other ships that were ripped apart on beaches in India & Pakistan and are now razor blades or door panels on Japanese cars.

    So the old Temple Hall can be viewed by holiday makers in Lanzarote, it suprises many as they drive up the old coast road. If you go there for a holiday I'm sure many more timbers and artifacts will be dotted about the locality. I found the anchors and masts quite by accident and the timbers I found and by deduction and cross-checking online.

    Hi John
    I think that is the one built in 1954!
    Became Pantelis in 69 then Telamon 77.
    Cheers

    Your one was a Bulk Carrier wasnt it?
    In 78 became Seaway Sandpiper in 90 was renamed just Sandpiper!
    Hope this is correct!
    Cheers

    Default Thats the one

    Doc thats it. Self discharger 3 cranes and think if remember 10 ton grabs. She had been previous under the Australian flag running Phosphates into Sydney from the Islands. In those days re wages, going through the books the Deck Boy ( Australian) was on more than the British Mate. Just shows how wages suddenly went up in the 70"s re. British Shipping. Too late for some of us as the jobs went elsewhere shortly after. Regards John Sabourn.

    Can't agree with Bill, having lived in Pakistan and visited Gadani Beach shipbreaking many times, it gave (gives) employment to thousands and gives them a living when they would have none elsewhere, it also recycles the steel whilst it is not rotting, ships generators, pumps and numerous other items are kept as spares for ships andI have obtained spares from there many a time. Yes they may not have all the H & S requirements in place, but working with these guys you know they are as careful and agile as anyone you will see in any industry and their expertise in devouring a ship with basic burners is a lesson in ingenuity, as is their expertise at rebuilding machinery that others would have scrapped.
