  100 Ton Gun
by freya_heaven

Nelsons Anchorage, is so called because it is where Nelsons body was brought ashore by HMS Victory, after the Battle of Trafalgar.

There is a small military museum here with a 100 Ton Cannon Gun pointing out to see, made in Britian in 1870.

Its Free to get in on a Sunday, but we wandered in on Thursday & there was no one to take out money
