Guns on Collingwood Monument, Tynemouth

  • Description

    This was erected in 1845 and is one of three monuments in the country to the Admiral who was second in command at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Following Nelson's death, he went on to win the battle. Below the monument are the four guns from his ship Royal Sovereign. Apart from those on the Victory these are the only surviving guns of their kind.
