Cannon on Flatholm
Cannon on Flatholm
The island of Flatholm is strewn with defence relics that go back to Napoleonic era, the first and second world wars.

In many cases, attempts have been made to reclaim them as scrap over the years but they've proved unwieldy even to being cut up and now are strewn on the southern part of the island.
