Ramscliff Gun 2

This concreted and eroded small cast iron gun was located at the Ramscliff Cannon site by the SHIPS Project team in 2013. The gun is lying on its side with one trunnion upwards and partially covered by a large rock that is concreted to it. The muzzle of the gun appears to be missing and the cascobel is heavily eroded. The gun is heavily concreted so difficult to measure accurately.
