Cannon Yard or Square
junction of Common Lane and Slough Road
This Crimean Cannon is located on the forecourt of one of the school buildings of Eton College. The particular building houses the Geography department. It is readily accessible from the road and can be viewed through the railings if the gates are shut. The plaque on the gun indicates that it was restored in 2001 by John Slough of London, a gunsmith.

High Thames Street runs south from the bridge over the Thames at Eton. The gun points directly up the street to the bridge and in the distance Windsor Castle can be seen overlooking the landscape.
