Mug, Royal Brass Foundry, Woolwich

The structure was designed & purpose built around the vertical boring machine and the ease of transfer of cannons, cast here for government service until around 1870 and is described as a monument of outstanding importance' as a 'rare example of a large scale machine shop from the very early stages of the industrial revolution'.
