Consultation description

The wreck of HMS Victory, the third ship of that name and known as “Balchin’s Victory” after the Admiral who commanded it, was recently rediscovered in the English Channel, outside UK territorial waters.

Because of the unique importance of this Sovereign Immune wreck site for British naval heritage, the Ministry of Defence and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) are issuing a public consultation paper on the possible future management approaches for the wreck site. DCMS will be coordinating responses to the consultation.
