Magnet fisherman Dave Jordan and Ray Harper discovered a well preserved cannon in the River Don, next to the Ball Street Bridge at Kelham Island on Saturday 12th August. The guys took the cannon to local Kelham Island Museum where hopefully further tests can take place to date it.

The YouTube video by Dave Jordan is well worth a watch…the cannon find is around 13 minutes in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG47auJpFxU.
We await further news on dating and will let you know as soon as we know more!
