A Russian Cannon in Welling
Jun 2020
Large Russian Cannon from the Crimean War.

Not in working order.

Don't bother unless your a cannon enthusiast.

This large Russian gun is located at Welling corner on a brick base and displayed on a wooden carriage.It is from the Crimea war and on loan from Royal Artillery Museum. Worth a few minutes look.

The cannon is in the centre of Welling and was built by apprentices. It's worth a look but that will only take a few moments. I think it is a good addition to Welling High Street

Welling use to be a home for some munitions workers who worked at the Royal Arsenal; Crimean War cannon represents this link.
A excellent meeting point.

The cannon is a landmark!

This cannon is a great place to meet, with interesting history to read, seats to sit on (marble, so cold in winter!)
Ideally located at the crossroads, on bus routes, so nice and central.
What always makes me laugh is the number of times I've used it as a point of reference- and local people don't know it's there!
"Meet you at the cannon"
"What do you mean, cannon?"
"The huge metal thing that fires cannon balls!"
So many walk past without seeing- don't be one of them! Look as you pass, and take it in!!

Pretty cool

Crimean war cannon, with an information plaque and some seating and plants. Bit of a strange place for it to be honest, I have always lived in Welling and don't know the connection between a quiet London suburb to a war in Russia. Probably not worth going too far out of your way to see it, but if you are nearby it's worth a look. Holds a place in my heart as a childhood meeting place - "see you at 5 by the cannon".

Nice, bit random

Lovely memorial of war, although in a very odd place at the end of Danson Crescent. Not really appreciated by highstreet shoppers.
