    I wonder if they have ever been fired in anger?

    i remember having seen some 16 pounder guns in Singapore and some shots were on display to give an indication of size. i think these did serious damage.

  6. Got back from Jersey about two weeks ago, Bamburgh Castle reminded me of Gorey Castle Look it up, see if you agree with me :)

    • CherryPie says:

      I looked it up and yes I can see the resemblance but Gory Castle does not have the vast expanse of landscape that can be seen from Bamburgh Castle.

      What do you think?

  7. Astrid says:

    That are some serious cannons, Cherry. That can give big damage.

    If only people had invested all of the money that went into military over hundreds of years into making friends instead of enemies, our world would surely be thriving.

    • CherryPie says:

      That is so true. Disputes between territory and nations fuel the development of military technology. It is about power and dominion, for some reason societies always seem to form themselves in this way.

    ah the terrifying part of human nature ,specially men!

    • CherryPie says:

      From an English perspective men are not terrifying but it was mostly men that took part in warfare as directed by politicians of the times…
