Cannonball found in the Village

  • 12 December 2012

    During recent roadworks in Wrotham Village a 2lb cannonball was located approximately 2 metres/6 feet below the ground.

    The cannonball is believed to date back to the middle ages but is not known whether it was fired in anger. Could this be from the Wyatt insurrection of 1554?
