Castle Cornet Cannons

Castle Cornet at St Peter Port on Guensey. The island on the horizon to the right of the shot is the small and very beautiful island of Herm. The castle has been in use, right from the 13th century and up to the second world war.. These are just a few of the cannons to be found around the castle.
