TA1625 : River Bank Steel Loops

taken 10 years ago, near to Paull, East Riding of Yorkshire, Great Britain

River Bank Steel Loops
River Bank Steel Loops
These loops can be seen in proper context in previous photographs; they're probably only 15cm (6") high! I don't know what their original purpose was - it seems unlikely that they were used for securing boats to as the river level varies too much with the tide and the currents at this point can be very strong too. Their presence at the moment just serves as a dangerous trip hazard for walkers right next to the water's edge!

P.S. further investigation shows that the loops were probably the bottom of an iron fence which could have been removed for "the War Effort". Anybody out there able to enlighten me further?!
