Never good to loose a nut smile
Bill Phillips: Very truetongue
very phallic. It looks like a lingus you'd see in a Bali temple or an Angkor one.

Bill Phillips: Thanks for this information Robsmile

I can't think what else it might be for.

Do you remember that silly song "Nuts: whole hazel nuts - Cadburys make them and they cover them in chocolate?" Oh dear - it was probably "take them." Anyway it was an utterly silly song but it did its business very well because I can remember it even to this day.
Bill Phillips: I remember it well, and it was make. But do you remember the Mackeson maxims with Frank Muir?

Lingus from the early iron age...the usual rule is that 2 is about right number of nuts, Bill.

A fine study of ancient artifacts, and historians will be excited by this early sign of zinc plating on the nuts.
Bill Phillips: Te more nuts the merrier I say Raysmile

Probably due to cutbacks in local authority funding.. a 25% saving.Good lighting in this has brought out the best colours in the rust.
Bill Phillips: Knowing our local authority, Alan, you could be right

Yes, I notice (we name these little 'nuttige' things "Mutter", even a word with a double meaning!)- your big 'knob' -oh my, what for a scary 'Krawensmann' (with an impressive long shadow)- could perhaps complete the big things (depictured on Chris blog today)?
Bill Phillips: I don't what they are teaching you at that English classtongue double meanings! Is Krawensmann a naughty word ? smile
I don't know what Chris has pictured but I don't like the look of it!
I can see a "V" for victory with the shadow Bill!
Bill Phillips: Oh yes so you can!

By its rusty look we can see that British women have little respect for this symbol of the ancient cult of fertility, Bill. smile
Bill Phillips: How right you are Viktor. You are both perceptive and knowledgeable about us Brits :p
Yes Bill.

I'll post the Cornish version
Bill Phillips: That will be nice but I'd rather have a picture of a good pasty!
thats one fine rusty knob Billgrin
Bill Phillips: A prime example Sir Tim smile
Sounds as though that could be painful Bill, a missing nutsmile)) This would be even better if the bollard had been wet so that it bought out the texture of the rust a bit more.
Bill Phillips: A wet knob and a missing nut might just be too much Brian
Better see a doctor.
Lol at zed !
Bill Phillips: Yes indeed!
