A TWO hundred year old cannon may be restored after a Burnham man expressed concerns over it’s state.

Alex Jennings, 82, of Fernlea Road, Burnham is calling for the iron cannon belonging to Burnham Town Council to be restored and reinstated nearer the waterfront.

He said: “I want the cannon to be set back in it’s old place at the Quayside by the sea wall."

Mr Jennings plans for restoring the cannon to the Quay are based on how he has secured his own cannon at his home.

Mr Jennings’ cannon are reinforced with steel, surrounded with cement and secured by ship’s anchor chains.

Who is paying for this? And moving it to the sea wall so it falls apart again more quickly due to salt damage...
