The waters off Portland have a terrible history of maritime disasters and one inspired the creation of the Avalanche Church at Southwell. The church is named after one of two ships, the Avalanche that collided with another, the Forest in September 1877. One hundred and six people died in the tragedy and following a national campaign, 1,900 was raised to build a memorial church close to the scene of the disaster and was opened for the first time on 3 July 1879.
