    Unfortunately the photograph gives no indication of scale - It could just be the steel ball out of a ball/socket mast mount or even the end of a semi buried oxygen cylinder. It could even be a Nelson era cannon ball off the nearby beach, stranger things have happened. Somebody will have to push a stick or hand into the water and find out.

    many happy memories of playing at the mundsley gun battery as a kid. The large building in front of it i think it used to be a hotel was semi derelict back then as well.
