The Gloucester 1682 Trust
Birketts is a proud supporter of The Gloucester 1682 Trust, which has been formed to secure the heritage future of the Gloucester and its connected artefacts.
Having run aground on 6 May 1682 while carrying James Stuart, Duke of York and heir to the throne, the Gloucester was discovered in 2007 by Norfolk divers, Julian and Lincoln Barnwell and their friend James Little.
Described as Norfolk’s Mary Rose, the discovery has uncovered a time capsule into one of maritime history’s most significant shipwrecks.
