“The Forgotten Ship”

Researched December 2016
Revised December 2018
The wreck of the iron steamship SS Hjørdis (English equivalent pronunciation “Yurdis”) has lain off Blakeney Point since she went aground and was wrecked in February 1916.
Almost a “ghost ship”, little was known locally about the Hjørdis and it was surmised that she might have been victim to a wartime attack.
In 2016, one hundred years after the ship was lost, there was a revival of interest in her.
