121229 Trunnions

This just in from “Bollards of London”

“It is often said that “every cloud has a silver lining” well the cloud that followed me to the West Country must be lined with gold (not just water). Shortly before arranging my travel/tickets I received an email from a gentleman called Julian who happens to live/work in Deptford South East London. The email bowled me over for it contained the pictures/photographs you can see (above/below) of an actual ‘Saker’ cannon (circa 1630) that was used has a bollard in the Tooley Street (SE1) area of London, possibly by the Thames.”
