The Rosehill was torpedoed by U40 in September 1917 whilst travelling from Cardiff to Plymouth. She sank some 2 miles south of Portwrinkle, 2 miles to the east of the James Eagan Layne

She lies at about 29m and her 2 boilers stand proud at around 24m.  The Rosehill resembles the Persier to dive and apart from the boilers she has been flattened. The Rosehill supports a variety of fish, cod, bass, Pollack, wrasse and conger whilst the plates are covered with fan corals. The stern section is well defined. Here there is a gun that is quite impressive. The steering gear, rudder and part of her propeller can be clearly seen.
