Cannon discovered on Clovelly Harbour beach

Whilst replacing the posts in the harbour on 17th April with his brother, Stephen, Tommy Perham spotted something whilst the digger was digging holes for the posts. 
When investigated, they discovered that it wasn’t a pipe, as initially thought, but in fact a cannon!
When Tommy chipped away most of the rust, it was believed to date back to the 19th century.

More information awaited.
