I think it's the Conway which ran aground in the Menai Straights. I think that's the bridge in the background. This is my first post on here and I look forward to more like this.

I can't believe they tried taking a ship that size through the Straits, it was bound to end in tears.

I'm from East Yorks near Hull. I don't know much about ships but do have an interest in them. Your clue gave it away because when I looked closer I could see the Menai Bridge. I'm sorry to say I Googled Menai Straights shipwreck and came up with the above link. Am just looking through older pictures now. It's a good fun competition. Well done.
