CRIMEAN CANNONS - WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

The Grange
Grange Court
Pinsley Road
Leominster
Herefordshire
HR6 8NL


Leominster acquired a Crimean gun as confirmed in an article in the Ludlow Standard (Leominster), 9 April 1943, p. 3, 'Grange cannon removed for munitions: a relic of the Crimean War'. The cannon was located on a plinth on the public green known as The Grange, near the entrance to Grange Court. It was then removed in WWII as detailed above. The cannon was once noted as something for children to climb on and where to let fireworks off.

Nearby Grange Court is a historic house built in 1633. It was formerly the Town Hall. Today it is a Community, Heritage and Enterprise Hub, owned by the people of Leominster. It is a place for people to meet, work, learn and enjoy!
