The first shot fired from HMS Victory at Trafalgar was from a 68-pdr carronade loaded with a round shot and a keg containing 500 musket balls - it was devastating.  The weapon had been invented 30 years earlier and developed at Carron Iron Works to put Britain at the head of the arms race and was sold in the thousands.  The radicals of 1820 decided to help themselves to those stored at the works and ended up at Bonnymuir, 200 years ago.  It also ensured almost two centuries of ironfounding in the area.
