Kingsland restores Sheringham Shoal cannon

In April 2010, an old iron cannon was found during an unexploded ordnances survey of a site near the Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm, together with a 250 lb German WWII bomb and other items. The cannon and its tank were transported to Kingsland Engineering in Sheringham, where the long restoration process began.

Once arrived, the cannon was subjected to an electrolytic process in order to restore and preserve the characteristics of the cast iron. After being stored in fresh water, the cannon was donated to the Mo Sheringham Museum, located near to Kingsland Engineering, since when, the 2 m long cannon has formed the centrepiece of an exhibition. The Duke of Kent recently visited the museum and was full of interest for the age-old cannon and the many other exhibits.
