In 1883 the 150-ton British brig Sea Belle was on passage from Nairn for Sunderland when she ran aground on the Goswick Sands during a storm; both of the two crewmen on board were saved. Though she was totally wrecked, some of her ribs and keel are still to be seen at low tide, firmly bedded in the sand On 22 November 1883, the British steamer Thistle was transporting a cargo of coal from Sunderland to Montrose when she stranded on Plough Seat reef. She encountered storm-force 9 westerly winds off the north Northumberland coast and to ease the terrible sea conditions, her master, Captain J. Potter, brought the vessel closer inshore, but it stranded on the long Plough Seat reef off the east side of Holy Island. Of her crew of 11 and one passenger, only one crewman was drowned and the others were saved by Holy Island fishermen in their cobles. However, the Thistle was so badly damaged that she filled up with water and soon became a total wreck. The Thistle (Official No.86371) was an iron-hulled 401-ton steam cargo vessel completed as Yard No.6 by Pearce Bros.
