For the last day of rusty old ironwork, here is a puzzle for you. What is this?
Seriously – does anyone have any idea what this is? I have tried to find out, but failed. It is clearly of some significance as it has been erected in the middle of the Coast Path!
I have rotated this image so that you can read the writing more easily. I have searched for it on the internet.
Do you appreciate rusty old iron relics?! No? Okay, my theme for the coming week, starting tomorrow, will be photos from the week we have just spent with Tessa (our daughter) and Matt and their two “in care” girls near St David’s in Pembrokeshire. We arrived back home this afternoon. (I did take a few more photos of rusty iron artefacts, so they might slip in during the week!)

It’s a fence post.
I don’t think so, David, as it is too complex and has a cog wheel at the bottom.
I saw an old catalogue for Francis Morton Co. (Liverpool) from 1862, and the object is called a winding straining fence post. Does the linked image look like what you saw?
Wow – you’re right! Thank you so much for your searches and finding it. What a complicated bit of ironwork for a fence post!
