DescriptionHartlepool Situated on Hartlepool’s Headland keeping a watchful eye looking out to sea is the Sebastopol Cannon near the Heugh Battery. The plaque next to the cannon reads:- This cannon was captured from the Russian Army at the battle of Sebastopol, during the Crimean war 1854-1856. In October 1857 the then Secretary of State, Lord Panmure offered the cannon to Hartlepool Borough Council who gratefully accepted it. The cannon was transported from London on the steamship 'Margaret' at a total cost of £2. 19s. 3d. and after a years delay arrived at Hartlepool in September 1858.
