Summary:In a small cove at Shutter Rock lies the wreck of HMS Montagu. Mostly flattened and covered in kelp. In c 12m of water and much dived. Under the armour plating ammunition can be seen, including shell heads for the 12 inch guns. The forward magazine must have been flooded soon after going aground as there are still boxes of small arms ammunition stacked in their original position.
