Nina Hanaford, CART's CIO for Devon, has discovered this concrete filled bucket near the entrance to either the Ermington or Ugborough Patrol OB. She wonders if it might have been a counterweight for the entrance hatch. Thoughts?
I have never encountered a counterweight of this type and I would like to see whether or not there is a spigot at the other end of the object. If so I would say yes, in all probability. If not then it is unlikely.
