Beechey Island - Canada, Nunavut Highlights:
Terror & Erebus lost expedition winter site
Beechey Island lies at the western end of Lancaster Sound and Devon Island and to the north of Baffin Island. This was the over wintering stop for the famous and tragic last voyage of Sir John Franklin, who sailed into Lancaster Sound in 1845 in HMS Erebus and Terror and was never seen again. The loss of this expedition resulted in a 12 year search that involved as many as 14 ships. The remains of these expeditions are visible in the outlines of Northumberland House and the cross made from the tin supplies left behind. There are also four graves, three of which are from the Franklin Expedition. Despite its bleakness, this lonely Franklin Memorial nevertheless commemorates the determination of the British to explore and open up the Arctic, no matter what the cost.
