Title: Old Metal Box in Gobions Wood
Post by: Abbot on July 17, 2016, 06:04:23 pm
Does anyone know what the 2 foot metal box with 9 bolt holes in the woods is. Pictures attached.


What was fixed to it? Seems to be Imperial measurement so must be pre EU.


It is a sealed box so can't be an old water tank.

Is it located near the old sewage works? http://maps.nls.uk/view/104201842

No it is up by the Canal/Pond. That doesn't appear on that map. When was the Canal/Pond re excavated.

I believe the canal was restored in the 1990's.
