Outside the Ella Freeman Heritage House in Champney’s West sits a curious artefact. Passersby might think it only an old piece of wood, but locals know it was the spar of the wrecked vessel Hazel Pearl. This spar was accidentally brought ashore by fisherman Wayne Freeman when it became tangled in his capelin seine several summers back. Radio documentary producer Rebecca Nolan presents a special episode which tells the full story of Hazel Pearl - where the ship came from, and how it ended up at the bottom of Trinity Bay.
