ss Great Britain runs ashore

SS Great Britain runs ashore Dundrum Bay on the north-east coast of Ireland. Measures are put in place to protect her, organised by her designer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, but even with these no other ship would have survived the winter storms. However, her iron hull is so strong that she can endure it ready to be re-floated during the next summer.

The Great Western Steamship Company suspends sailings on both of their ships: SS Great Britain and PS Great Western.
