Posted: September 10, 2013  |  By: Telegraph

HMS Victory, commanded by Admiral Sir John Balchin, was one of the most technologically advanced ships when she sunk off the coast during a storm near Plymouth in 1744 with the loss of all crew onboard. The three-decked ship was the predecessor to Admiral Nelson's Victory and held up to 110 bronze cannons.

Discovered in 2008, the wreck has been almost completely off limits to divers as it lies 246ft below a busy shipping lane in an area with strong tides.
