A cast-iron ball, probably a cannon ball of Post-Medieval date, 16th-17th centuries. The ball is spherical with a general corrosion across its entire surface, with one portion of the surface bearing a thicker, sub-conical accumulation of corrosion. It is 1.25lbs in (imperial) weight. Another possible function is as a grinding ball for industrial activity, which would most likely date to the 19th century.

Cast lead cannon ball with a diameter of 48.33mm. The object is circular, but with some pieces missing (the biggest of which is a long gash that measures 28.5mm long, 8.4mm wide and and 5 mm deep) which causes the shape to be irregular. There are many other dents and pits in the surface, which are also filled with dirt. Probably dates from the post-medieval period.

A chipped stone cannonball, probably of 16th or 17th century date. The ball is sub-spherical, chipped from a sandstone with pecked marks visible on the surface. Approximately one-third of the surface has a sooty, blackened surface, suggesting that it was fired from a cannon or powder-based artillery piece. This object is one of three examples found in the same area.
