City of Rochester Upon Medway

These naval cannon were excavated during the construction of the new river wall at Riverside in 1993. They have been mounted on new carriages designed to closely represent their original carriages.
This cannon is an 18 pounder and had a range of approximately 3500 yards. It was cast in Finspong, Sweden in 1783 for the Dutch Navy and would have come from a captured ship for probable re-use aboard a British vessel.
The other two cannon are 12 pounders of British manufacture and both carry the royal cypher of King George III 1760-1820. They were probably cast prior to 1790.
