The Napoli had been damaged in a storm in 2007 and was abandoned by its crew, it was then taken in tow to take it to portland for repair, but the weather got worse and it was decided to Beach her in the waters off Branscombe.
The beaching location was at Branscombe around 1 mile (1.6 km) off the Devon coast, near the coastal town of Sidmouth. This area of the coastline where MSC Napoli was beached is a part of Britain's first natural World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast. In winter Lyme Bay hosts large numbers of wintering sea birds whilst the sea bed was habitat for endangered species such as the pink sea fan and sunset cup coral. When the cargo fell off the ship and was washed ashore on Branscombe beach people came from all over the country to loot the containers. Branscombe was besieged and initially there were not enough police to stop the mayhem. I painted this picture of her from the pebble beach on a 16 by 12 inch board. The Painting is for sale and a little bit of history. It is framed with a thin brown wooden frame.
