Thread: Any guesses as what this could be?

    Any guesses as what this could be?

    I keep bumping into this bit of metalwork out on the hill and don't know what it is. It is approximately a mile from the nearest road and half a mile from any water way plus down a steep, wooded slope.

    Could it be a piece of roller shutter?

    Agreed - given that it looks to be galvanized my guess is that it has come from a commercial building of some description!

    they are put down purposely so adders etc can use them to bask on and to live under,I saw a programme on the TV showing some people(can't remember what affiliations they had)putting them down.The tin holds the heat for them.

    Somtimes they do the above to act as adder traps if there is a big job (some Mways, pipelines etc) on so someone can catch the adders and move them away from the job so noone gets bit.

    But there could a a few other random reasons why its there, mibee part of a shed/7.5T van contanaier used as a store/shelter and rest has rotted away or possibly even another stalker used it as his deer sliegh (unlikely)

    Thanks,
    A roller door it is then. Can't imagine how it got there though. There is a plane crash site about 3km away but seems too far for it to have originated from there. I know of tin sheeting travelling a few hundred meters but not 3000!

    Any old atv's have roller doors... snowcats etc ?
