1946. HMS Saltburn ran aground at Hartland Point, N. Devon.

HMS Saltburn was a Hunt-class minesweeper built for the Royal Navy during World War I by Murdoch and Murray. Named after the town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea in North Yorkshire, she was not completed until after the end of the war. The ship saw no active service during World War II as she spent the war as a training ship. Saltburn was sold for scrap in 1946, but was wrecked while under tow.[1]
