Sebastapol Cannon, Hartlepool

This 19th Century cannon was captured from the Russians during the Crimean War. In 1857 the secretary of state, Lord panmure offered the cannon to Hartlepool Borough Council, who accepted it gratefully and it stands to this day, keeping a watchful eye out for Invaders coming in from the North Sea
