Myths and Legends Series: The Ghost Ship of Goodwin Sands
£120.00 – £128.00
Goodwin Sands is a 10-mile long sandbank off the Deal coast in Kent. The Lady Lovibond was a schooner that is alleged to have been wrecked on Goodwin Sands on 13 February 1748. It is said that it reappears there, as a ghost ship, every fifty years. The first sighting of the phantom Lady Lovibond on 13 February 1798 was reported by at least two ships. It is alleged that the ghostly ship’s appearance in 1848 was so convincing that lifeboats were sent out from Deal in the hope of rescuing survivors. The last report was filed in 1948 by Captain Bull Preswick, who was convinced he saw the Lady Lovibond surrounded by a green glow as it entered the Sands. The story of the ghost ship created so much attention that a crowd of curious onlookers made their way to the Sands on 13th February 1998, to catch a glimpse of the legendary ship. But they left disappointed when no ship appeared.
