Shipwreck pieces in Huron-Kinloss

On May 25th, 2021, the Township of Huron-Kinloss was notified that pieces of a 19th Century shipwreck washed ashore at one of our beaches. The Ontario Marine Heritage Committee (licence 2020-08) and Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry have launched archaeological investigations to gain further information about the shipwreck.

We are asking the public to respect the ongoing investigation and to avoid this area of the Point Clark Beach. Please do not move, remove, or damage any of the shipwreck pieces while the investigation is underway. There are concerns with safety at this area, as there are metal pieces protruding from the shipwreck, please do not touch or climb on them.

Information about the shipwreck will be available at the end of the investigation.

We appreciate your patience while we work with our partners to determine a path forward. No further information is available at this time.

Photo Gallery: Shipwreck May 27 2021 will appear here on the public site.
