The western end of Knoxes, the highest point, is the only part that is not submerged at high tide, along with the barren little Solan Rock, which is actually connected to the reef at low water. Knoxes Reef is also about 30 metres at its widest point at the western end, while below the surface at the eastern end, except for a couple of narrow channels breaking it, the reef curves a further 200 metres out into Staple Sound. This latter part of the reef, being so shallow, has caught out many an unsuspecting diving boat. The dry part of Knoxes Reef is comprised mostly of small stone and shingle and attracts a few nesting waders in the breeding season. There have been a couple of recorded ships wrecked on the north side of Knoxes Reef: on 27 July 1852 the schooner Breeze, and on 29 October 1864 the brig Myrtle. Between Farne Island and Knoxes and just south of Solan Rock is the so-called safe anchorage of Farne Haven, a place regularly used by the trip boats when waiting for their passengers visiting Farne. On 27 December 1849, there was a terrible calamity in the Haven when the 327-ton paddle steamer Britannia I (1847 – Edinburgh and Dundee S. P. Co.), which was sheltering from a storm along with a number of other vessels, dragged her anchors in the strong wind.
