What is this object, one of several, hunkered down in a shelter belt near Hills Farm, Bartlow? A trap? If so, what for? A military left over? Left over from what? Ventilation for something running underground? An unlikely place for pipes and cables. Something to do with rearing game? Feeding station for condemned pheasants? A picnic table? Hardly, unless for Hobbits and with a corrugated top designed by the Mad Hatter, Frodo meets Alice. Do we want to know? Is speculation more fun than the reality?
