The Cannons on Bargate Green, which had been captured at Sebastopol during 1854-55 were presented to the town after the Crimean War. Acquisition of the two cannon was enabled by Herbert Ingram and their transport by sea from Woolwich was paid for by him. They were unloaded at the town quay opposite the Custom House. Following siting in Bargate, they were later joined by the First World War tank but were destroyed for scrap metal during the Second World War.
