Description: During the First World War, shortage of steel led to the construction of a number of experimental ships out of ferro-concrete (reinforced concrete). The remains of one of these ships, the tug ‘Creteblock’ now lay on Whitby Scaur. In 1927 the Creteblock was decommissioned and the hulk sat in Whitby harbour until after the Second World War, when it was towed out to sea to be intentionally sunk. On 22nd August 1948 Creteblock was towed out to sea, but instead of ending up in deep water it sank on the Scaur, where she remains to this day. Over the intervening years she has been broken up by the action of the sea and spread over a large area.
