This Sherman is just up the hill from the new museum at Port Winston harbour. Port Winston was the site of one of the famous Mulberry Harbours, and significant parts of it can be seen still surviving in situ. This Sherman is mounted on what appears to be a small concrete plinth, surrounded by a low hedge, in a car park on a steep hill that provides a view over Port Winston.
