Anyone know what these are

Unearthed in my sons garden, I'm guessing some sort of ground anchor for something, but not seen anything like them b4? That's a piece of 4 x 2 behind them, gives an idea of scale

They look like drain cover keys to me ?

Edit.

Maybe not they would be smaller with a notch on the bottom

I wouldn't have thought they'd be scaffold feet or anything like that, they are solid steel, not hollow, very heavy, & would have thought way too big, heavy for drain cover keys.

Like Angel, I'd wondered about giant tent stakes, like for a marquee, or Circus tent, but then why the large "T" head rather than a simpler round flat head - assuming that's the head of course.

Any railway workers on here, I'd wondered about something to do with rail track. or sleepers, but never seen anything like it in a rail yard

C'mon, LCB, you're not gonna fail me are you???

Just a wild guess from me....

They're not some sort of dibber for planting things are they?

My granny had a wooden fork handle with a snapped shaft. Whe used it for dibbing holes to plant bulbs IIRC.

....like I say just a wild guess!

That could make sense, they'd need to be weighty to keep fence stable in winds?

Unless you want the metal (steel?) I'd get down the local tip and drop them in the metal recycling bin.

LOL. Following from the post about putting it in the recycling bin I thought you were going to suggest chuck them in and give the magnet fishermen something to find

He lives in Leeds at the top of a hill, so I think any canals would be some way off!
