(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order designates as a restricted area for the purposes of the Protection of Wrecks Acts 1973, an area off the Smalls Reef, Dyfed, round the site of what is thought to be the wreck of a vessel which is of historical and archaeological importance.
This Order corrects the position of the centre of the site of an historic wreck identified by the Protection of Wrecks (Designation No. 2) Order 1991; that Order is accordingly revoked.
No part of the site is above the high water mark of ordinary spring tides.
