St. Andrew's Church, Newgate Street, NE1 - cannon balls

  • Description

    "See [[3737101]] and [[3737137]]. These cannon balls were discovered in 1960 when new meeting rooms were being built. They are thought to date from the 1644 siege of Newcastle when a cannon was placed on the church tower - see [[3737129]] - to fire over the nearby town walls into the ranks of the besieging Scottish Army. {Source: Church booklet.}" Photo by Mike Quinn, 2013.
