    Loads of bits and bobs. Some old some new some a mystery.

    Hello again

    Just a bit of a catch-up. Ive been unable to post due to the new puppy and kids managed to simultaneously destroy both the laptop and phone camera Apologies therefore for the poor photos as, until the repair shop re-opens I no longer have the luxury of focus.

    A good variety of finds. Congratulations and hope you get your technology fixed soon.

    May I ask, what is an old farming cack ? I have found an old copper ring on my farm. Could be the same thing?
