Thames Water meter cover
Thames Water meter cover
Totally boring image of the standard (plastic) water meter access cover as installed by Thames Water. Uploaded to compare and contrast with X2693 : Celtic art is still flowing - close-up the splendid way they do it in Ireland.

To make this page a bit more interesting here are some factoids from LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) on Wikipedia:

Q. Why are man hole covers round?
A1. A circle is easier to manufacture.
A2. Cannot have situations, like with a square lid, where the lid falls into the hole because the edge is smaller than the diagonal.
A3. Can be locked in place by doing a quarter turn.

(The system does not seem to support a view direction of looking vertically down!)
