Bow and stern are visable above seabed but the midships are burried in a sand ridge. She has as good as flipped completely over to her port side but there are areas where you can swim through where she has collapsed inwardly. As you swim back towards the stern you can drop down into a large swim through, as you come out of the swim through you will see dissused lobsterpots to your left on the sea bed if you look up you will  be greeted by the Clodemore's  huge prop still there intact. The wreck has loads of marine life living on and around it
