Old fence straining post
The cast-iron post has 'Bolt plate' cast on it on the right face, and 'Patent' on the left. The spindle for the upper wire is missing, that for the lower wire is in place, with its ratchet. There should be some more lower down, also the manufacturer's name, strongly suspected to be Francis Morton & Co of Liverpool.
