C19 cannon on wood carriage attached to 2 stone steps and beneath iron overthrow with street lamp. Surround of chain guard and iron posts. Cannon bears inscription 'Captured Sevastopol 1855'.

It was given the name ‘The Earl of Aberdeen’. The Cannon was officially unveiled on the 17 February 1859 by Gunner Cole (of the Royal Artillery). The cannon was removed during the scrap drive of the Second World War, but was rescued by Mr R.G. Bradshaw (Alderman of Retford). The cannon was reinstated after the Second World War, set on a new wooden gun carriage, being officially unveiled on the 29 March 1950 by the Mayor of Retford, Councillor T. Richmond.
